Thank you so much to everyone who attended our Big Sandcastle Build on Saturday.

We will have the photos and video from the day up here soon and will let everyone know when we hear from The Guinness World Records.

A massive thank you to Mark Anderson and David Hicks for joining us on the day and demonstrating how to build the perfect sandcastle.

You don’t have to fundraise to come along to the Big Sandcastle Build but if you’d like to we’d really appreciate it, as would the vendors that we help to support. You can set up an online sponsorship page at the same time as registering to attend the event.  You can also download the sponsorship form here.
