TEAM IRELAND TAKING UP THE NEW CHALLENGE!! A fresh call to action!!
Yesterday Guinness World Records confirmed that a new world record has just been set for LONGEST LINE OF TEDDY BEARS AT 15,534 TEDDY BEARS by 10 year old Finlay Church (UK) at the Alvechurch Cricket Club in Worcestershire IN THE RAIN!!!!
When we started on this challenge the record we set out to beat was 4, 041 – which we are confident of beating! While the new record raises the stakes we are still taking on the challenge! We are confident that we will at least set A NEW IRISH RECORD and do our level best to beat the new world record. What is important is that we as a community come together to support two local charities and in doing so share a great day out together, have THE GREAT IRISH TEDDY BEAR GATHERING! There will be fun, music and street entertainment. A regular MEITHEAL! LET’S DO THIS THE IRISH WAY!
So, after months of hard work we need your teddies now more than ever, please pass the word. BRING EVERY TEDDY BEAR YOU CAN LAY YOUR HANDS ON! All new teddies joining our line can be brought to NEW TEDDIES TENT in St David’s Car Park on Sunday morning. (Keep up the prayers for fine weather.)
