The attempt will take place in the grounds in front of Peterborough Cathedral on Sunday 10 June as part of Peterborough 900 Celebrates.

Anna’s Hope founder, Carole Hughes, explains what the record attempt is all about: ‘The charity was inspired by my daughter Anna, who died from a brain tumour aged just three. She loved dressing up as a fairy. Anna’s Hope now helps more than 120 children with a brain tumour each year. By breaking the World Record we hope not only to have a lot of fun and enjoy a great sense of achievement, but also help raise awareness of children with tumours.’ brain tumours. The magical fun of this very unique World Record attempt will take place in the Cathedral grounds from 12.30pm and will conclude around 2.30pm. See you there – and don’t forget your wand!
