SP Balloon Flies Across London

On Sunday 9th June, Londoners woke up to the sight of hot air balloons filling the capital’s skyline as 46 took flight as part of the 2019 annual RICOH Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta®.

In an awe-inspiring display, the balloons took off en masse from Battersea Park at 5:15am in the morning, the first-ever launch of its kind from this location. With the CEO of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal on board, the balloons flew over many of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Cutty Sark, Greenwich, Canary Wharf and Thames Flood Barrier.

The Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta® is quickly becoming a standout feature in London’s calendar and the annual event has raised an overall total of £250,634 to date. The funds raised for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal will support three inspirational charities: Samaritans, OnSide Youth Zones and Place2Be.

Founded and organised by the world’s leading aerial marketing specialists, Exclusive Ballooning, the Balloon Regatta® has been running since 2015 and has received continued support from headline sponsor RICOH along with the City of London Corporation.

Southern Plasticlad Ltd were very proud to participate in this event this year and hope to fly again next year along with donating funds to charity again.
