Kingsley into space!

10 July 2013

Incredible journey for Royals mascot

Royals mascot Kingsley went 100,000ft into space this weekend in aid of a local school!

In a project devised by children at Purley CE Infant School, season ticket holder Phil Allen and flight expert Dave Akerman, Kingsley was sent into orbit to raise funds for the school – and the whole adventure was captured on video!

The incredible journey is on YouTube now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIZOtJgPgBQ and you can see Kingsley flying high in this truly breathtaking video.

Pupils had prepared for many weeks to get the journey perfect, and the whole thing went swimmingly, with Kingsley recovered in Petersfield after his sky dive at the end of his journey.

Hundreds of pounds have already been raised – with the amount to be double by Phil’s employers Microsoft – and you can donate online at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/purleyspacemission
