On Saturday 18th April Hampton Rotary Club attempted world record for having the most glow sticks glowing simultaneously. The US had the record of 836 people.
The aim was to raise funds for the Robert Connor Dawes Fund, supporting brain matters in areas of research, care and development. Schools all over bayside got involved and they received lots of support from business also.
The event was taken place at Trey Bit Reserve, and Sandringham Beach. With rides, face painting, food, DJ’s and more! It was a cold, windy night but that didn’t stop people and it ended up a fantastic night.
Big celebrations were had with this coinciding with the rotaries 110 birthday. They lined everyone up on the beach in the numbers 110 as the sun went down, ready to crack their glow sticks. The 6″ glow sticks were used.
And they smashed it! They beat the world record with 1298! Congratulations Everyone!
