A children's charity from Bradford has finally made it into the record books for creating the longest ever string of beads. The incredible five-and a half mile necklace is the work of children on cancer wards across the country. Charlie Garforth reports.
A children's cancer charity in Bradford is hoping to break a world record for making the longest string of beads. Children from cancer wards all across the UK have helped to produce the giant necklace which is almost six miles long.
An adjudicator from Guinness World Records will officially measure the beads this afternoon. It is the brainchild of Colin Nesbitt, the found of the Little Heroes charity. Colin set up the charity following his experiences of caring for her son Reece Randall who had leukaemia.
He and his team have spent weeks stinging together more than a million beads to create the necklace.
