Beaulieu Sets Its Sights On A World Record Attempt

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800

IT MIGHT be best known for its collection of weird, wonderful and historically significant cars, but the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is now reaching out to anyone with an interest in toy cars.

As part of its bid to break the current world record for the longest line of toy cars, Beaulieu is asking for donations in order to topple the current record of 9,795, set in Guatemala last December.

The attempt will be held in the grounds of the attraction with a continuous line, one kilometre long, of at least 10,000 cars placed end to end, starting and finishing inside the museum. After the record attempt, the toys will be sold and the proceeds donated to Naomi House & Jacksplace hospices for children and young adults.

To qualify, donated cars can be of any type designed to be played with by hand including cars, lorries, tractors and quad bikes, but not large enough for children to sit on. The attempt will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 5th May.

Sainsbury’s is supporting the appeal, with collection boxes in 21 stores in the South coast region from Monday 10th February. Local schools are also joining in the appeal and there will be boxes in Naomi House charity shops.

Toy cars can also be donated by visitors to the Beaulieu attraction and children who bring two or more toy cars during February half-term and on the day of the record attempt, can enter for half price.
