On Sunday 17th May, two local charities, The Caroline Foundation and LAKERS are getting together to raise funds for very deserving causes.
The Caroline Foundation supports CANCER RESEARCH in IRELAND by funding a Scientific Researcher, Dr Norma O’Donovan on Professor John Crown’s Clinical Cancer Research Trust Programme.
LAKERS is a community-based, sports and recreation club for children and adults with intellectual and/or physical disabilities.
On Sunday 17th MAY these two charities are coming together to set a new Guinness World Record for LONGEST LINE OF TEDDY BEARS in Greystones.
We need 8,000 TEDDY BEARS!
As it is a fundraiser we are asking donors to sponsor their Teddy for € 10 PER BEAR!
Will you join us in making this happen?
We would really be grateful for your help in either of the following ways:
1. As an INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEER - Would you be willing to collect 10 TEDDY BEARS at € 10 a BEAR from friends and neighbours? If so, PLEASE get in touch for full details.
2. As a TEAM LEADER – Would you be willing to RECRUIT 9 others with you to form a TEAM – each of whom will collect 10 BEARS @ € 10 a BEAR (100 BEARS PER TEAM)? Think about this - are there 9 other people in your PLACE OF WORK? COMPANY? RESIDENTIAL ESTATE? CLUB? Etc. that you could invite to participate in setting a new Guinness World Record – have a great day out and help others at same time? We would just love to hear from you.
So, in summary:
1 INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEER = 10 TEDDY BEARS
1 TEAM = 100 TEDDY BEARS
Both individual volunteers, team members and Team Leaders would ideally turn up on the day - Sunday 17th May from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
OUR AIM IS TO HAVE 80 TEAMS – the route will be about 1 mile in length along Greystones Seafront [½ mile each side of Beach Bear running onto Beach on one side and onto Marina on the other] with Teddies leaning against road side kerb/wall/railing for support – see photo). The route will be divided into 80 sections – well signposted. Each team will be assigned a section of the route well in advance of the day.
It is our hope that this will be a fun, family day out with music and street entertainment to add to the atmosphere.
VERY IMPORTANT: Naturally, from an organisational perspective the more TEAM LEADERS we can get the better! However, we will be most grateful for whatever support you are happy to give.
