Anglian Home Improvements employee Marcus Jahrling, or as he is alternatively known, Mr Giggles, is attempting a Guinness World Record on the 12th June.
Mr Giggles is participating in this years Canvey’s Got Talent show and is going to attempt to break the world record for the most ‘high fives’ in 1 minute. The current record was set by Alastair Galpin from New Zealand, high fiving 76 people in 1 minute. To break the record you have to high five as many different individuals as possible in 1 minute.
To make this possible the talent show judge has managed to get the Canvey choir and the 2187 Squadron Royal Air cadets to volunteer 1 minute of their time to make this world record attempt possible. Ideally, Mr Giggles would love at least 100 people lined up, so if you want to get involved make sure you are at this fantastic event.
The charismatic clown has been training hard for the up and coming competition doing 100m sprints, running, eating healthy and getting in as many high fives as possible throughout his day.
“It would be nice to break the official record,” were Mr Giggles words earlier, so lets all try to make this possible for him.
However, it is not all about breaking the record, Mr Giggles and Canvey’s Got Talent show are all raising money to help support the Little Haven’s Hospice. This is a charity completely funded by donations; they have no government support, but appreciate every penny donated. The money goes to helping terminally ill children, their parents and carers have a place to relax and ease the strain of constant care, giving them the time to enjoy being a family.
If you live in the Essex area listen out for interviews with Mr Giggles on Radio Essex, as he will be updating us on how his world record attempt is going and how Canvey’s Got Talent is going to be an exciting day.
I am gutted I can’t get down to the show, it looks like it will be a memorable day! Here is the highlights from last year – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNHDUtflw2A&feature=fvst
