Not even an amber weather warning could keep our Sheffield team from attending a World Record Breaking attempt in aid of Twinkl held at the well renown Crucible in Sheffield.
Emma Cotton, director of polkadotfrog and Andrea Moon, recruitment consultant, were accompanied by 382 contestants from seven local primary schools, businesses and charity employees to make the great attempt. It was in the name of raising awareness and well needed funds for Twinkl’s projects to support children and young people across the UK.
Four popular Disney songs were sung in relay, with one word each being sung by a different attendee, not so easy when the average age is six. The Guinness World Records’ Prav Patel and his team were there to ensure every word could be heard in the right place at the right time. Phew!
Although Roy Castle wasn’t there we were ably coached by Caroline Hallam of Sheffield Music Hub, controlling and enthusing nearly four hundred people is no mean feat. After lots of perspiration and dedication, we did indeed smash the record!
Emma Cotton said “We had to come and get behind Twinkl as they do great work for not just Sheffield but the rest of the UK. We just wanted to give something back as Sheffield is proving very successful for us, matching Sheffield talent to amazing Sheffield businesses”.
