On Friday 27th April 2012, students and staff at Sydenham High School held a ‘Big Breakfast and Balloon Race’ to set the world record for the biggest cereal breakfast and release over 3,500 balloons to raise money for charity.

The outdoors event, part of Sydenham High School’s 125th anniversary celebrations, took place on the school astroturf between 8 and 10am on Friday morning. 653 girls from the junior and secondary schools braved the weather to sit down together at 9am and officially break the Guinness World Record for biggest cereal breakfast. The record previously stood at just over 200 people.

In a bid to raise money for the school’s anniversary charity, Sydenham High girls have been selling balloons to friends and family for the past few weeks in aid of Leukaemia Research, The Bone Cancer Research Charity and Teenage Cancer Trust. At 10am, after the record-breaking breakfast, 3,500 balloons were released, providing a spectacular sight in the Sydenham sky and raising over £9,000.

Local signage specialists, Creative FX, have supported the event by buying plenty of balloons and producing a promotional banner. Creative FX Director, Trudy Pook, whose grand-daughter attends the school, was also at the event. “It is a great thing the girls have been doing and they’ve raised a fantastic amount of money! It’s nice for them to be able to do something different for charity and now they’ll always be able to remember it since they’ve made it into the Guinness Book of Records.”

Showing his support for the charity fundraising, the Mayor of Lewisham also attended as witness to the cereal record-breaking attempt, along a with camera and film crew to capture the hundreds of balloons filling the sky.
