The Anchorage Trust is hoping to clinch the record for the most number of Santas bouncing on trampolines in an hour.

The stunt will take place on Sunday December 18, 6-8pm, at Jump Warehouse in Main Cross Road, Great Yarmouth, and some 100 people are needed to secure a place in the record books.

Fundraising co-ordinator James Sinclair, of Caister, said that no such record had been set, making it a good one to go for and giving the town a shot at counting itself among some of the globe's biggest, if most bizarre, achievers.

The event is open to all ages and will have to be filmed and photographed to officially verify the effort to Guinness World Records.

Mr Sinclair, 30, said the Anchorage Trust was making great strides supporting young people in the town, especially when it came to decent housing, and that he was keen to help.

The Santa Bounce was his idea and has been enthusiastically embraced by the Jump trampoline park, he said.
