We'll be back next year, bigger and better.
Brighton Sussex UK (PRWEB UK) 16 December 2015
Experiencedays.co.uk, a leading UK experience gift company, recently teamed up with toy manufacturers Mattel, to attempt the world record for most gifts wrapped simultaneously. 362 volunteer wrappers gathered in the Citygate Centre and Church in Bournemouth on the 4th of December for the big wrap, and despite a mammoth effort by all involved, they were unsuccessful in their record breaking attempt.
Experience Days organised the event and spent weeks scouting for volunteers to help them in their attempt to break the record, and provided free drinks and food for everyone who signed up and took part on the day. Toy manufacturers Mattel provided hundreds of toys for the wrap, which would be donated to Baranardo’s children’s charity after the event, win or lose. The big wrap was a festive event, and spirits weren’t dampened despite the record being missed this time.
Javed Khan, Chief Executive of Barnardo’s, was appreciative of the effort, and spoke of the difference Experience Days and Mattel will make to many of the children Barnardo’s supports: "Christmas can be a very difficult time of year for disadvantaged children and their families. Barnardo's is delighted that the gifts being wrapped as part of this world record attempt will be going to children we help and support to make this time of year extra special for them."
Robb Young, managing director of Experience Days, was disappointed that the record wasn’t broken, but certainly wasn’t looking at the event as a failure. “Of course we would have liked to get the record. For all the people who gave up their time to come here and help us do this it would have been the icing on the cake. So that’s a bit of a shame, but to be honest it’s just brilliant to know that there are 400 kids in deserving families who’ll now get to open a cool present on Christmas morning. I think that’s probably more important to everyone who took part in this. Not getting the record this time just gives us more incentive to come back next year and do it bigger and better, so watch this space”.
