Onesie wearers are being asked to ‘don’ their all-in-ones for a world record challenge at the stadiummk this Saturday to help raise funds for the Henry Allen Appeal.
The charity was initially set up for Henry Allen, who suffered 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.
Registration will now take place at the earlier time of 7am until 9am. Gates for the challenge will open at 8am with all participants needed inside the stadium by 9.45am.
Challengers for the ‘Largest gathering of people wearing one-piece pyjamas’ can turn up on the day to take part but must register.
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.
On top of the onesie challenge Samantha has also organised aweekend 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.
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
