London, England / September 28, 2013
On September 28, 80 North London residents, many over the age of 70 with walking sticks and in wheelchairs, wore decorated hats while forming a conga line. Paul Stanfield, Claremont, and volunteers from international law firm Slaughter and May organized the event.
They set the record to raise money and awareness for the London Charity - Claremont, an organization that builds community and tackles loneliness in older life. Granny hip hop artist Ida Barr and Deputy Mayor of Islington, Cllr Theresa Debono, were present to witness the attempt.
- conga line must stay connected for duration of attempt
- children and those being pushed in wheelchairs or otherwise assisted may be counted even if they are parallel with the main line
