Seashell, in partnership with Oliver Dunn of Oli’s Chocolate Parties, has been awarded an Official Guinness World Record for “Most users in a lollipop-making video hangout”.

On Saturday 5 December 2020 Seashell teamed up with master chocolatier, Oliver (also known as Oli the Choc), for the online chocolate lollipop making workshop. A total of 511 people took part in the online hangout to help Seashell and Oliver set the record.

In addition to achieving the Guinness World Record, Oliver has made a donation of £7,642 to Seashell from the sale of the kits.

Events Fundraiser at Seashell, Jo Barber, said: “We’re sending a huge Seashell thank you to everyone who bought a lollipop kit and took part in the World Record attempt.

“To raise £13,000 at a time when our fundraising has been devastated by the impact of Covid-19 is a significant amount for Seashell, and we couldn’t be more grateful to Oliver for all his support.”

Oliver said: “Seashell does amazing work helping young people with complex disabilities, so we were delighted to support them by raising much-needed funds.

 “And to get the World Record is a bonus – I’m so thrilled! Well done to everyone involved for the part you played in helping us achieve this fantastic feat.”
