Arjowiggins Graphic and Antalis McNaughton Attempt Guinness World Record


Arjowiggins Graphic, the leading manufacturer of environmental paper solutions, has teamed up with Antalis McNaughton to attempt to break a Guinness World Record™ later this month at the Young Carers Festival 2012.

Taking place between Friday 29th June and Sunday 1st July, the festival will see the two companies team up with young carers trying to break the Guinness World Record™ for the greatest number of people wearing paper hats at a single venue.

The festival, jointly organised by The Children’s Society and YMCA Fairthorne Manor in Southampton, provides young carers throughout the UK with a weekend of fun and friendship, giving them the opportunity to take a break from their responsibilities.

Antalis McNaughton donated CyclusOffset 350gsm 100% recycled paper to make 1,500 paper hats for participants to wear for a duration of 10 minutes in order to break the Guinness World Record™. Achieved in November 2011 by South Worcestershire College in Evesham, the previous record stands at 390.

Angela De Vorchik, Operational Marketing Manager at Arjowiggins Graphic, comments: “We are very much looking forward to attempting to break the Guinness World Record™ at the Young Carers Festival. We hope that the attempt brings an added element of fun to the festival’s Closing Ceremony and gives the inspirational young carers the chance to be a part of Guinness World Record™ history.”

Cyclus Offset is a 100% recycled uncoated, natural white offset paper with excellent opacity, which offers an unrivalled print finish.
