Scoot along to Gravesend's Cyclopark for world record attempt

09 August 2014

On your marks, get set and scoot into the record books at Gravesend’s Cyclopark tomorrow.

Riders from the age of three upwards have the chance to break two Guinness World Records by taking part in Ready Teddy Scoot.

The first is the largest parade of push or kick scooters - the current record is 489 - and the most people in a nursery rhyme singing relay - the current record stands at 180 people.

Ready Teddy Scoot was the idea of Suzanne Moorcroft, from Bexley, who wanted to help and support a close friend and her family after their son, Teddy, died last year.

There will also be a sponsored scoot, with all funds donated to Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, as well as stalls, refreshments and entertainment throughout the day.

The parade is due to start at 11am, with the nursery rhyme relay from 12.30pm.

Earlier this week, event organisers Yvolution donated some scooters to chYps Children’s Hospice at Home, part of EllenorLions Hospices.

A spokesman for the charity said: "These scooters will be used by our young patients and siblings during their respite which will bring a lot of happiness and smiles."
