Guinness World Record Attempt In Auckland

World Animal Week Free Public Event Sunday 09 October 2005

As part of a global celebration the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is staging a free, public event at Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour with the aim of breaking the Guinness World Record for the ‘World’s largest game of Chinese Whispers’.

The event is open to everyone and promises to be fun for all the family with games, face painting, street performers and you may even get to whisper in the ear of one of many animal loving celebrities who will also be in attendance on the day.

The event starts at 12 noon on Sunday 09 October and hopes to attract around 1000 animal lovers from Auckland and beyond. The current world record is held by an American School group who achieved 814 ‘Chinese Whispers’. WSPA New Zealand Regional Manager, Kimberly Muncaster is confident of breaking this record and urges anyone who ‘thinks the world of animals’ to come along and take part.

World Animal Week runs from the 4th to 10th October, and will give New Zealanders and people around the globe a chance to celebrate their love for animals, whilst recognising the incredible achievements which are being made by individuals and organisations around the world.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
