#SundayNightChallenge - Union Jack support for our NHS to fight Covid-19

This campaign has been withdrawn

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who has called or emailed us to express their concerns associated with sky lanterns.

While we recognise that sky lanterns have caused inconveniences to farmers and some member of the public, we strongly believe that all those concerns are associated with poor quality sky lanterns which are not equipped with the latest innovative components, like those used to build premium, supreme and union jack sky lanterns.

In addition, we strongly advise our customers and those who intend to place an order to strictly follow guidelines and safety instructions highlighted at the end of this page and on the packeging. In particular, only use sky lanterns in appropriate weather conditions.

As emphasised by experts of the Trading Standard Institute (Code of Practice - Sky Lanterns 2014), when used as intended in appropriate conditions and in small numbers, sky lanterns do not constitute a high risk. With a little care and consideration they can be enjoyed safely.

We cannot guarantee that on Sunday the weather conditions would be suitable for releasing sky lanterns and this may be different across country and will need to be postponed to another day. For this reason, we have decided to include in each pack a Union Jack candle bags made with fireproof paper. However, please consider the possibility of using LED tea-lights to minimize the risk of fire from wax candles.

Furthermore, we have also chosen to donate 100% of the money raised from the sale of Union Jack Candle bags, published on the following link https://www.nightskylanterns.co.uk/5-union-jack-candle-bags.html


We all have been overwhelmed from the coronavirus emergency, which is disrupting our lives and changing the way we used to live in our communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with all families who have lost loved ones because of the Coronavirus COVID-19.
We feel obliged to thank all NHS staff and key workers who are putting their lives at risk to continue providing all essential products and services. In particular, we would like to show our greatest gratitude to all NHS professionals, who are on the frontline, caring for anyone who needs assistance and in particular, for the most vulnerable people, like elderly and people with pre-existing medical conditions.
For this reason, we were thinking on how we could help and to show our solidarity to people who are fighting the deadliest virus of the 21th century.
Therefore, we thought of launching the #SundayNightChallenge with our Union Jack Sky Lantern.
As we are all advised to #StayAtHome and follow social distancing guidelines, all together, we will be releasing Union Jack Sky Lanterns from gardens and driveways of houses across the UK, every Sunday Night, until this unprecedented situation has been overcome.
Together, we can stop this pandemic! With your help, 100% of the money raised from the sale of our Union Jack Sky Lanterns will be donated to support UK National Health Service (NHS) to fight COVID 19 and help to tackle this pandemic with appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
If we soon want to return to normality, this pandemic needs global actions to stop its spread and we are all called to take responsible actions.
Order now Union Jack Sky Lanterns in support of NHS and let us all show our solidarity to NHS professionals and key workers, who are doing endless shifts, behind hospitals windows, across the whole United Kingdom.
We are all called to do our bit and we must take serious action to stop this unprecedented pandemic.

At Night Sky Lanterns®, we are doing everything we can, during this challenging time.
We have taken all necessary precautions to combat COVID-19 and our primary focus is always protecting our staff and our customers.
As suggested by the UK Government, to minimise the impact of the coronavirus on our customers and our entire supply chain, we are working remotely, wherever possible, while all orders are regularly packed and dispatched every day, respecting strict hygiene procedures.
Many of you are calling us to find out if we are still operative and if we can make personalised sky lanterns. We will do our very best to deliver all orders as soon as possible, but sometime we have no control over our partners and carriers.
Likewise, we are strictly following the UK Government’s directives, although, together with many other companies, we have been proactive in taking actions to reduce the spread of the coronavirus throughout our supply chain.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional information on our products and services during this turbulent time.

Completely irresponsible to promote this during the crisis. No thought for the risk to properly or the environmental damage.
Don't you think fire services have more pressing things to do than have to fight unnecessary fires?

As a nurse and a strong believer in our wonderful NHS, I must write to you as I feel strongly against the release of sky lanterns in respect for the current crisis. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence to show how dangerous sky lanterns are to wild life, horses, crops and a fire hazard. The emergency services have enough to deal with at this current time without adding extra pressure and risk that sky lanterns cause. The majority of nhs staff would be against this. Please stop and think of your actions and the consequences this could have. There are other ways to support and help.

Nevermind about COVID-19, how about not setting fire to the countryside and littering it up with damn things.
