A successful world record attempt! – 29th July 2013

Posted in: News, by Bridge2Aid Team, on 10th October 2013 | 0 comments

A team of 35 drummers were congratulated on Saturday, 13th July having successfully secured a world record for the ‘longest marathon drumming by a team’ whilst raising money and awareness for three oral health charities, including Bridge2Aid.

The group, led by oral health campaigner and drummer Ian Aguado-Bush, participated in a 70 hour drummathon in aid of Bridge2Aid, Heart Your Smile and The British Dental Health Foundation.
The record attempt took place at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford.  Each of the 35 participating drummers played for 2 hours in order to break the previous record of 66 hours of continuous drumming.
Ian, Founder of oral health campaign ‘clean my teeth’ commented: “I was so excited to bring together my two passions – drumming and dentistry. We supported the Clean My Teeth campaign and raised money for the British Dental Health Foundation, Bridge2Aid and Heart Your Smile.’
Henry Schein Vice President, Patrick Allen, who took part in the drummathon and played for 2 hours enthused: ‘It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the successful world record attempt.  It was an amazing experience – some of the drummers are seriously world class. Congratulations to Ian Aguado-Bush for hosting such a successful event.’
The successful world record attempt has so far raised over £4000 for the three charities. We thank Ian and the group of drummers for choosing to support Bridge2Aid. With plans to train 366 Health Workers in emergency dental care over the next three years, every penny donated to Bridge2Aid will bring us one step closer to reaching our goal and making a lasting change for thousands.
