Youngsters break bra world record
9:40am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
A SPLASH of pink was brought to Abingdon on Saturday as attempts were made to break the world record for the most bras taken on and off in a minute.
Several hundred people turned up for the annual Splash of Pink Day in the Market Place, organised by Abingdon charity Against Breast Cancer, which included live entertainment, stalls and food and drink.
But perhaps the most bizarre sight was people taking a bra on and off again.
Kimberly Kelly, a student at Abingdon and Witney College, had a go but only managed five in 60 seconds.
She said: “It was a really good day and there was a lot going on like raffles, dancing and singing.
“I had a go at breaking the record but only managed five.”
The record was later broken by 12-year-old Georgia Terry, who managed to put 10 bras on and take them off.
The previous world record, set in Germany in 2012, was nine.
Georgia, who lives in Grove, said: “I can’t believe it. I just kept going faster and faster.
“I didn’t do a lot of practice, but my mum, who works against breast cancer, is really proud of me.”
