PIC: People Are Attempting To Break The Christmas Jumper Guinness World Record In Derry


Check Derry out!

This Christmas Jumper World Record attempt hit the streets of Derry yesterday – with santas, elves and reindeer as far as the eye can see.

More than 3,473 people were needed to have taken part in order to break the existing record, which is held by the American city of Kansas.

The total number is still being verified, and until it is, the volunteers face a nervous wait. 

There was a required entry fee to join the festive madness, with all the money going to local charities like Foyle Hospice, Children In Crossfire, Concern Worldwide, the Mayor’s Charity and Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Both Dublin and Drogheda have attempted and failed to break the record in recent weeks.

Pressure’s on Derry.
