The Balloon Man on Top Billing

Matt Silver-Vallance's epic balloon adventure

You may not have heard about Matt Silver-Vallance but if you were in Cape Town this past weekend we are sure you have heard about 'The Balloon Man!

Top Billing Presenter, Janez Vermeiren caught up with Matt before his epic journey from Robben Island to Blouberg beach attached to 200 helium filled giant party balloons.

Matt undertook this unusual adventure with the aim of raising awareness for the Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital and the extreme costs they incur due to the highly specialized equipment they need to provide care for children.

We wonder what he is going to be attempting next!
