- I do have a sponsored haircut on Tuesday 19th May 2020 no
matter how long my hair has grown AND we put that haircut
into The Guinness Book Of Records. I have registered to
submit new records to the publishers, there are many haircut
records but there is not one for THE
GREATEST NUMBER OF
I am thinking the publishers will accept
one thousand as a record. The idea is to find one thousand
people who will come together at the same time and in the
same place on Tuesday 19th May and all have their hair cut
simultaneously within a 30 minute period of time. THEN
each person who has had their haircut has a smile face
painted on them.
So we have 1,000 haircuts and 1,000
hairdressers. Some will also be the face painters while for
some heads there will be two people - cutter and painter. Let's say we have
2,500 in total taking part. The locations we used for Sunshine Smile Day
2018 and 2019 would not work. Marshall Arena at Stadium MK
can accommodate five thousand. This is likely to be the
venue if we go ahead. I have asked Stadium MK for a
Doors open at 6pm with a welcome disco.
Haircut 7.30pm to 8pm. Disco 8pm to 10pm.
When we have a quote from Stadium MK and
have added in some additional costs we can come up with a
figure which we charge as a registration fee for haircutting
teams to take part. It would be nice if this was £5, if it
is more than £10 then sadly the whole thing becomes a
have to be certain we can get 1,000 heads to be cut. If we
can not then again this is again a non-starter.
Assuming we get our 1,000 heads and 1,000
scissor hands and 500 face painters we have 2,500 people who
will find go out and sponsors to support our homeless
Anyone could take part - man, woman -
child. They do not have to have their head shaved although
they could, it could be as little as a trim. The
smiling face paint is the important thing although this is
not part of the record.
The warm up music and the post cut disco
would make everything a great smiling evening.
We could have some fun happenings: games,
competitions, a raffle, refreshments. All of this can be
planned once we know the idea has sufficient support.
