Onesie World Record attempt

15 October 2013

Onesie wearers are being asked to ‘don’ their all-in-ones for a world record challenge at the stadiummk to help raise funds for the Henry Allen Appeal.

The charity was initially set up for Henry Allen, who suffers from neuroblastoma, to raise money for treatment. Tragically the four-year-old passed away on Sunday 20th October, however, Appeal organisers have stated that the charity will aim to create a legacy for Henry and help other children with cancer. 

As part of the fundraising efforts the home of MK Dons, stadiummk, stepped in to help after Samantha Poole, a mum of two, called on the city to help her find a location to host a World Record attempt.

Samantha has pulled out all the stops for the gigantic weekend of fundraising for the Henry Allen Appeal with a coffee morning kick-starting the fun at the Hungry Horse in Broughton, on Friday 1 November from 10am until 2pm. 

She is calling on city residents to wear their onesie with pride our coffee morning, to work, meeting friends – basically wherever you go over the weekend Friday 1 November to Saturday 2 November. 

A Halloween and Onesie themed family disco then follows from 4-8pm on Friday 1 November at Wonderworld MK. 

Everyone who attends the events on the Friday will be able to register for free for the world record challenge which takes place on Saturday 2 November at the stadiummk between 10am-11.30am. Challengers for the ‘Largest gathering of people wearing one-piece pyjamas’ can also turn up on the day to take part.

Anyone participating in the challenge will be entitled to discounted tickets for MK Dons' match against Walsall, which kicks off at 3pm. Onesie participants can redeem the offer by taking their world record ticket to the Box Office immediately after the event where they will be entitled to tickets at £10 for Adults and £3 for Under-18s. Tickets are limited to one per participant. 

The current world record stands at 700 and was achieved by Drayton Manor Theme Park in Staffordshire on 20 April 2013.

Running alongside the weekender from now is an auction of promises which also aims to raise much needed funds for the appeal. There are plenty of exciting items up for grabs just visit Auction Of Promises for The Henry Allen Appeal
