my Police Centenary- A/Senior Sergeant Wayne Clayton Jul 25, 2017 @ 3:26pm

Centenary Police joined Stretton State College staff, students and the community on July 21 to set a new Guinness World Record.

Stretton State College successfully hosted a Guinness World Record event for the longest chain of people clasping wrists to raise awareness and funding for the National Charity ‘Hand in Hand’ Fighting Brain Cancer.  Hand in Hand is a 100% volunteer based not for profit organisation which provides support to families, adults and children affected by brain cancer and brain tumours.

The Charity raises awareness and funds to help find a cure for Brain Cancer with all proceeds going towards funding a children’s book on the brain tumour journey from diagnosis to treatment.

The world record was achieved through 3,300 people holding hands at once and eclipsed the previous record set at 2,950.

The event was proudly supported by Cr Angela Owen, 96.5 Family FM Radio, Channel 7 news and assisted by the 6 RAR Army.

Jeff Horne, recently crowned World Boxing Organisation (WBO) welterweight champion also attended this event throwing his support behind the ‘Hand in Hand’ Fighting Brain Cancer Charity.
