People living across the Fylde coast have been invited to play a key role in an exciting and unique event taking place later this month.
Organisers of the world record attempt – for the most people exercising to a fitness video at Lytham Festival on Saturday 21 July – need to recruit more than 100 volunteer marshals to make sure the event is a success.
The Fylde coast NHS has joined forces with local authorities including Fylde Council, as well as Lytham Festival organisers Cuffe and Taylor, to hold the event to raise awareness of the need to keep fit while also celebrating the NHS’ 70th birthday. A six-minute exercise routine has been choreographed and filmed by Blackpool-based Dancing on Ice star Dan Whiston.
Fylde coast GP Dr Tony Naughton, who has been the driving force behind the event, said: “We need volunteers to make sure we break the record while following the rules set by Guinness World Records.
“This means we need a volunteer for every 50 participants who will watch them to make sure they follow the exercise routine to the best of their ability.
“This is a great opportunity for people across the area to become part of the team and to have a key role in breaking the record. All volunteers will receive a medal and recognition of being part of the attempt.”
All volunteers will need to be on the site at Lytham Green on Saturday 21 July from 8am. Everyone will be finished by noon.
Anyone interested in signing up to be a volunteer is asked to visit www.fitterfyldecoast.nhs.uk/volunteer/ and fill out the form.
