On December the 13th we held a Carolling World Record Attempt on Eel Brook in Fulham,. What a fantastic day and a huge thank you to all those who came down to support and take part. We have had some wonderful feedback from those involved!
The Carolling World Record Attempt was to bring the community together and have fun but also so support and raise awareness for two amazing charities.
Why We Did It?
Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but for many it can also be a very difficult lonely period. In the world today $2.5 trillion is spent on antidepressants. This record attempt is to help raise awareness of these issues, bring together the local community, have fun and ultimately make people happy with a lasting legacy – if we can break the record which is why we are writing to you.
Who Are We?
My name is Julian Hay and set up a business called iMedia where we create live events. We recently set up an online magazine Wondrlust.com – where we try to better understand how to live a happy, fulfilled life. We wanted to create something memorable for the local community that combines a live event and living a happy life. So three neighbours sat down one Monday evening – myself, Graham Saltmarsh & Matt Read – and thought “Carolling World Record”. We hope that whatever the outcome, this will be great fun, helps to spread a positive message, and raising awareness and some money for 2 very good causes.
Not For Profit
This event is not for profit. Its aim is to raise awareness and money for two causes close to our hearts – as we see it two sides of the same coin, This is the essence of the record attempt.
-Action For Happiness (a movement of people committed to building a happier and more caring society) – http://www.actionforhappiness.org/
-Charlie Waller Memorial Trust (raising awareness to fight depression) - http://www.cwmt.org.uk/
