Local charity Anna’s Hope is inviting all fairies to help break the World Record for the Number of Fairies in One Place. The current record is 337.
The event will take place on Sunday 19th August from 12 noon in Burghley Park and the official count will be at 2pm. Fairies of any age and sex are invited to dress up, bring a picnic and put Anna’s Hope and Stamford into the Record Books.
To qualify as a fairy you need to wear Fairy wings, a tutu or dress and a wand. As an added incentive anyone dressed, as a fairy on the day will get half price admission into the Garden of Surprises.
The event is free but if you can also get sponsored then that would be fantastic and all the money will go towards helping local children and young people with a brain tumour.
Founder of Anna’s Hope and Anna’s mummy, Carole Hughes said ‘It would be brilliant if families and friends enter into the fairy spirit, break the world record and picnic together in the beautiful grounds of Burghley Park. It will also be a very special as the event will also coincide with what would have been Anna’s 10th Birthday.’
All Fairies must register prior to the event by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 01780 740492

Anna’s Hope is the leading children’s brain tumour charity in the East of England. Our first aim is to assist in the rehabilitation of children and young people who have suffered from a brain tumour or who have had brain surgery by providing or assisting in the provision of resources and facilities not normally provided by the statutory authorities at local hospitals and in the local communities. The second aim is to support the funding of research into the causes, treatment and cure of childhood brain tumours with particular reference to Childhood Ependymonas and to ensure the results of such research are published.
