Silly games with a serious purpose

Year-nine students at Seaford College are hoping to break world records in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

They will be raising as much money by attempting to break as many world records as possible on Wednesday from 4pm to 5.30pm.

Each year, roughly 2,555 teenagers are diagnosed with cancer, and that inspired the ambitious target of raising £2,555.

Some of the activities are the longest water balloon thrown and caught without it breaking, fastest 100m on a space-hopper, most M&Ms eaten with chopsticks while blindfolded in one minute, most leap frogs in 30 seconds, most trampoline seat-drops within a minute and most sticky notes on the face in one minute.

The school said the students would have a lot of fun with silly games that could involve lots of people.

George Vernon, head of year nine, said: “It’s a charity the children chose, it’s one that’s very close to our hearts. We’ve been raising money all year and with this big event we want to hit our target.”
