Another gallon of tea vicar?

30 Jun

BUPA care homes residents helped to knit a giant tea cosy which measures 11.1 metres in circumference and 3.9 metres in height.

Care homes across Watford and Elstree have helped set a new Guinness World Record by knitting the world’s biggest tea cosy to help raise awareness of loneliness concerning elderly people.

The world record is part of Bupa’s communi-tea week taking place between April 20 and 26 and is seen as the perfect way to help tackle the issue of isolation and loneliness within old people. As part of communi-tea week and to celebrate the world record, the care homes are hosting afternoon tea parties and are inviting older people in their local communities to join them. Proper Bring It On Brits!

Now all we need is the worlds biggest Battenberg cake and scones! any takers?
