We've partnered with Fone Booth in Market Harborough to launch this year's virtual balloon race. Balloons are on sale now! 

The race is computer generated and EcoRacing will use real time weather conditions to determine the progress of each balloon. Everyone who enters the race can virtually watch their balloon soar across the world and the balloon which travels the furthest will win.

Adam at Fone Booth said:

"I'm delighted to be able to sponsor and provide a fantastic first prize for the Vista Virtual Balloon Race and can't wait to see the race unfold!"

He added:

"Our teams at the Vodafone stores in Market Harborough, Loughborough and Hinckley are excited to follow your balloons from our store, across the world whilst contributing to the worthwhile work for children and adults affected by sight loss, in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Thank you, and good luck. Happy ballooning!"
