Charity aims to break world record

Longest bracelet attempt for Help Harry Help Others.

Martineau Place and Help Harry Help Others are urging the Midlands to get behind its Guinness World Record Attempt, as it aims to create the longest chain of beads.

The record attempt will take place at the Birmingham-based shopping centre on Friday 10th October, and will see Martineau Place wrapped in over 8,500 metres of beads. The final length of the bracelet will be revealed at the event, with every donation ensuring another metre can be added to the chain.

The partnership is encouraging schools, colleges, business and members of the public from across the region to get involved by making donations and spreading the word, with the added incentive that those who donate in advance will be able to keep a piece of record breaking history. Supporters who make the suggested minimum donation of £1 on the official Martineau Place JustGiving page will receive a bracelet, created using beads from the official record attempt.

Michele Jones, centre manager at Martineau Place, said: “This is an ambitious record attempt, though we are confident that with the support of the Midlands we can break it for Harry! The charity is a highly deserving cause in our local area, with a fantastically inspirational story behind it, so we’re thrilled to be on board to not only set the record, but also raise some much needed money.”

Georgie Moseley, Harry’s mother and chairman of HHHO, added: “Harry would be so excited at the prospect of being a world record holder, especially one so relevant to everything he achieved. Harry created a truly unique charity that really demonstrates you can achieve anything with commitment and passion, which is providing us with the motivation we need to try and claim the record.”

The current Guinness World Record stands at an incredible 8,668.57metres (5.39 miles), so Martineau Place and Help Harry Help Others are relying on donations to help them to break it. If you would like to make a donation, and secure your bracelet, please visit www.justgiving.com/martineauplace.
