Social Inclusion Week – Paper doll chain world record attempt
Bundaberg Regional Council is attempting a world record and all for a good cause! And you can be a big part of it!
On Friday, 26 November Council will attempt to create the worlds longest paper doll chain! Special adjudicators and judges will be on site as required by Guinness World Records to record the attempt. Currently the record is 6 590meters and was achieved by the International School of Kabul in Afghanistan on 2 December 2013.
How can you get involved?
From now until 14 November you can colour as may paper dolls as you can and return them to the Social Inclusion Week Committee. The dolls will be assembled into one long chain.
- You can do as many dolls as you like;
- Colour in, fold and cut out;
- Put your name, age, town and an email address on the back of the dolls (if we break the record we will email you a certificate)

Bundaberg Regional Council will be holding 3 events across the region to compile the chain. The first 2 events will be held in Childers and Gin Gin where paper dolls from that community will be joined to for the chain.
- Childers – Monday 22 November 2014
- Gin Gin – Wednesday 24 November 2014
Both chains will then come together with the final chain from Bundaberg to form the world record attempt chain. This will be held on Friday, 26 November.
