The Make A Difference (MAD) group is organising a Guinness World Record Attempt for "The most people to successfully High 5 across multiple locations" on Monday 10th October 2011 - World Mental Health Day.
The Make A Difference group aims to promote mental wellbeing across the community and challenge the stigma that exists towards mental illness.
The Guinness World Record Attempt for the most High 5s will be taking place in Luton and Bedford (as well as ten other community sites in the two towns) at 1pm on Monday 10th October. Anyone can take part and the current record stands at 1,790 people. Further details can be see on the poster below and on the MAD website.
This will be the first Guinness World Record Attempt I've made in 2011. On the 30th August 2010 Emily and I were part of the failed attempt at the Guinness World Record for the "UK's Largest Conga Line" at Huntingdon Races. On the 19th December 2009, along with fellow minigolfer Brad Shepherd, I attempted to break the Guinness World Record for Most Brussels Sprouts Eaten in a Minute!. Unfortunately I only managed to eat ten in each of my two attempts. On the 25th May 2009 we helped break the Guinness World Record for "The Largest Picnic Across Multiple Venues" by being part of the Luton picnic.
