Fight Against Maturity

One small balloon plus one jet stream equals 2,500 miles


A balloon released by a 5-year-old boy in the UK was found by a British soldier clearing landmines in Iraq.

Kelvin Bielunski received a letter from Corporal Pete Allen telling him how the balloon had made him smile. The balloon was one of many released by Kelvin’s class on June 7th as part of a competition to raise funds for Brewster Avenue Infant School in Peterborough, Cambs.

Headteacher Liz Waterland said: “The balloon must have caught a jet stream and floated until it burst.”
