A preschool in Abbots Langley held a fundraiser this week raising more than £350.
Breakspeare Community Preschool launched their Big Blue Balloon Race on Tuesday afternoon and launched 117 balloons into the race.
Many of the children who attend the preschool watched the the balloons soaring high above them and gradually disappearing into the distance.
The event was sponsored by Over the Moon in Abbots Langley High Street who donated the helium for the balloons.
Other local businesses also donated prizes for the owners of the balloons which travel the furthest.
The money raised by the event will be spent on equipment and resources to enhance the learning environment for the children.
