Most people on Space Hoppers 2007

The Wave and Swansea Sound Radio stations have linked up with charities, Shelter Cymru and the RNLI, to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people on space hoppers on Sunday 24th June 2007.

The event was open to the general public and was designed to appeal to the whole family. The record was open to all, practice took place before the attempt. The event generated awareness of and funds for Shelter Cymru and the RNLI’s Train One Save Many Campaign

Shelter Cymru is Wales' housing and homelessness charity. They prevent people from losing their homes by offering free, confidential and independent advice. In 2006 they helped 13,500 people in Wales and prevented homelessness in 92% of the cases where it was faced. They believe that everyone should have a suitable, affordable and secure home.

The RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) saves lives at sea but relies on voluntary contributions and legacies to fund the operations. The year, 2006, was the biggest year to date with 1,299 people rescued.

RNLI has launched their national campaign “Train One, Save Many” to raise £10M to train its volunteer crews over five years. The money raised will be used to train local crews.
Entry to the event was only £1 which was split between the two charities. Others records attempted include the longest Mexican Wave, the largest water balloon fight the most people skipping rope simultaneously, the most people to participate in a locomotion dance, the biggest custard pie fight, the most rugby tackles made in one hour, the largest single Twister, the most squat thrusts in one minute and of course the most people on space hoppers.

The radio stations previously broke the Mexican Wave Record back in 2002 and five years on were looking to get it back!

By the end of the day an amazing 4 World Records had been broken.

The largest custard pie fight included 70 people who threw over 300 litres of custard at each other in 3 very messy minutes.

That was followed by most people bouncing on space hoppers which has been especially designed for the day. The new record was set at 735.

Four generations of one family were included in the 1752 people who took part in the world’s biggest locomotion dance.

The final record broken was an amazing feat by Craig De Vulgt from Life Health and Fitness Club who completed an amazing 70 squat thrusts in a minute.

Thousands of pounds will be was raised for the two charities. Andrew Jones from Shelter Cymru said "To achieve 4 world records was an amazing result. The Wave and Swansea Sound have been absolutely brilliant and we would all like to say a very big thank you to Xbox and all the other sponsors. The representatives from Guinness World Records were brilliant all day – there to ensure we stuck to all the rules but they greatly added to the atmosphere as the crowds waited for their decisions to see if the records had been broken."
