An (unofficial) attempt at cracking a world record

Attempting to crack a world record!

Okay, okay so there wasn’t an adjudicator from Guinness World Records standing with a clip board overseeing this attempt BUT I had a crack (get it?!) at seeing if I could beat the current world record for the most eggs cracked one handed in one minute.

I was set this challenge from Britain’s Best Breakfast these guys co-ordinate an annual event where people host a breakfast and raise funds for the Carers Trust, the organisation that provides support and assistance for the UK’s estimated 7million unpaid carers.

Our national fundraising campaign to raise money to help us support more unpaid carers and give them a break from their caring role.  We want to encourage people to wake up to the issue of caring. We are asking you to invite your friends and family to join you for breakfast this year and raise money for Carers Trust.  We want people to have fun, eat breakfast, and raise a (piece of) toast to carers-Britain’s Best Breakfast

You can find out more information on how to be involved here:

What’s more everyone who signs up to get a hosting information pack before 18 October goes in the draw to win an iPad!

How do you think I did? You’ll have to watch the video below to find out…

    What a great cause! Carers are often overlooked and this would make such a real difference to their lives.

    This looks like great fun and for such a good cause too. I am rubbish at cracking eggs even on a good day. So really well done to you :)

    I loved watching this! My husband is my unpaid carer for me and my physical needs and I’ve never heard of this trust! Well done in your attempt!

    Good technique there! I don’t think I’d be able to do half that many and what a good cause too, carers often are forgotten about so well done for raising awareness, x

    I can hardly crack one egg without getting shell into it! Really good idea, though! Go official! You might as well give it a try!
