Up, Up and Away! Balloon Ride Auction by 'Stairlift King' Keith

It might come as a surprise to find out that Keith, the managing director of Castle Comfort Stairlifts, wouldn't be that comfortable with heights. After all, he does spend quite a lot of time personally seeing to the surveying and measuring of many people's staircases, some of which can be very steep!

So being used to heights, his team had clubbed together to buy six tickets for a hot air balloon ride for his birthday.

However, after a recent brush with the council planning office, (which will be another story) involving balancing up a ladder to attend to the eye-catching signs on the local landmark of Bank House, he had developed a touch of vertigo and has decided to auction the tickets for the Wickers World balloon ride company, for a flight setting off from the Shugborough Estate.  The proceeds of this will be donated to charity.

  With Keith Firmly On the Ground!
Nearly all of the balloon flights you would have seen near the Trentham or Shugborough estates are from Wickers, which have been going as long as Castle Comfort, virtually twenty years. 

Setting off in just the right weather conditions you will be rewarded with panoramic views of mile upon mile of the Staffordshire countryside, stretching off into the horizon.  This is something which has to be seen to be believed, and is often a once in a lifetime opportunity.

What makes this auction extra special is that the highest bidder will be sharing this breathtaking experience by being joined by 5 of their closest friends, family or work colleagues - whoever they choose to accompany them.  And if that isn't enough, all of their generous bid will be donated to the Donna Louise Children's Hospice, so it's all in a good cause.

To make your offer for these special tickets, which are worth nearly £800, please contact 01782 611411 or you can bid by email to  
The auction closes on 31st October 2016 so you have time to organise who you will take. Happy bidding!
