Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket Balloon Launches Ahead of Jingle Jam 2023!

Share this:

This Christmas, streamers across the South West are taking part in Jingle Jam, the biggest charity streaming event in the world. In celebration of our seventh year taking part, we met up with some of the Jingle Jam team to launch Wallace & Gromit’s Moon Rocket hot air balloon!

Jingle Jam

Running since 2011, Jingle Jam is a Christmas charity streaming event hosted by the Jingle Jam team, a beloved group of content creators and streamers based in Bristol. It sees participants from across the country live-streaming their own content – from games to vlogs, challenges and more – while generous spectators donate to their chosen Jingle Jam charity. Joining as one of the Jingle Jam chosen charities in 2017, streamers who want to support the South West’s regional children’s hospital and the amazing patients and staff in it can stream and fundraise for us.

Since 2017, Jingle Jam has raised over £1.6 million for us, which will help fund Jingle Jam Building – a revolutionary new facility that will offer families and patients in Bristol Children’s Hospital somewhere to stay for free, while receiving therapy and treatment on-site. 

The first-of-its-kind in the UK, Jingle Jam Building means children and their families who have long rehabilitation journeys ahead of them can stay together in a homely environment where treatment is just a stone’s throw away.

From 1 – 14 December, the Jingle Jam team will be live-streaming 24 hours a day, playing games and taking on all sorts of fun and festive challenges. Keep up with your favourite Jingle Jam team member or hold your own stream and get involved
