The world record attempt by Rotary Wessex for the ‘largest human representation of a text’. Each participant held up a letter or piece of punctuation telling the story of how Rotary is working to end polio.
The words used in the challenge were: ‘For over 30 years, Rotary and its members have been committed to fighting to eradicate polio across the world. The amount of polio-endemic countries has dropped from 125 to just 3 with over two & a half billion children receiving vaccinations thanks to the help of Rotary’
A family fun day was held alongside the record attempt. In addition Smudgerhunt Film made a film as proof of the record.
