Request from the Mayor of Southampton

This is a personal request of help from the Mayor of Southampton Councillor Ivan White and Mayoress Mary White. This year Southampton celebrates 50 years of becoming a city. Will you join us and help break a Guinness World Records® Record?
 
At 11.00am on Sunday 23rd March 2014 we plan to amass the largest swarm of human bumble bees to participate in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile being held in The Guildhall Square, Southampton.
 
In recognition that Southampton is truly a diverse city to live and work we fully expect to see bees that represent all ages and occupations from our community.  So whether you are a diva, diver, driver, student, mum, dad, gymnast, teacher, barista or barrister do join us. Individuals can run, walk, buzz, hop, skip or jump the mile. The important part is everyone joins the swarm dressed in some way as a bee. This is your opportunity to be innovative and create hives and bees of all descriptions.

To register go to: http://my.sportrelief.com/search/event/result?id=2945&location=southampton&event-type=run

Once you have registered, you will then be asked if you want to join a team. Please nominate:

The money raised through Sport Relief is used to help vulnerable people facing incredibly tough lives both at home in the UK and in the world’s poorest countries. The numbers of bumble bees are declining and we are hoping to raise awareness:

Bees are great champions of terrific teamwork.
