Alongside all this fun was the opportunity for guests to guess how many balloons had been squashed into a Smart car! Some guessed wildly, others withstood the rain to peer through the windows and count each and every balloon. (It was 86!)
There was a huge array of raffle prizes donated by a number of local businesses including stationery from Spicers Officeteam, kids’ colouring packs from Maad Toys and a beautiful box of fresh produce from the South Croydon Allotment Society.
Thank you to Michael Hall, Maria Malone and Jason Hill for their hard work in bringing the afternoon to fruition despite the bad weather and raising a fantastic £495!
