Guinness World Record Confirmed to Keep the Flame Alive for Perth

It’s official! Perth has made its way into the record books for the world’s Longest Awareness Ribbon! Finally confirmed this week, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) were elated when they received the news that they are now Guinness World Record holders.

Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation worked with schools from across WA, along with families and members of the community to sign segments of yellow ribbon, all of which were then sewn together to reach the world record-breaking length.


Many Busy Fingers make light work

We have been honoured to have the ladies from the National Lifestyle Villages in Bridgewater volunteer for our Guinness Book of World Record Attempt of the Longest Awareness Ribbon. They are not only helping us cut up some of the ribbon to share out to the smaller schools that wish to participate, but they have the very delicate and arduous task of sewing over 200 pieces back together in the very short time frame.

These ladies have exceptional sewing skills and clearly the enthusiasm for completing their tasks at hand. Thanks ladies for getting our ribbons ready for the schools in just one day. We look forward to seeing the finished 2000 metre completed ribbon on the 19th of April 2014. Thanks also to our photographer Jan Isaac for snapping these great shots for us!

Support from WA’s Minister for Education

Well this was a really great way to start the new year – with an endorsement from Western Australia’s Minister for Education, the Hon Peter Collier MLC.
