Jewson has set a new Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most people wrapping presents simultaneously’.
800 employees from branches and offices across the UK gathered at the NEC Birmingham to break the record of wrapping 496 presents, which was achieved in China earlier this year. All of the presents will be donated to Barnardo’s, the UK’s largest children’s charity. As well as the presents from the record attempt, Jewson employees from around the UK are also donating gifts to Barnardo’s in their local areas.
Mark Rayfield, CEO, commented: “Christmas isn’t the happiest time of year for every child, so we hope getting unexpected gifts will help brighten up their day. Barnardo’s is our charity partner for 2017, so what better way to kick off the campaign than donating presents to children that the charity supports.”
