A group is attempting to break the world record for the longest marathon on a bouncy castle.

The team are taking on the challenge at The Warren pub in Stamford Road, Kettering, throughout today (Saturday, August 3) and Sunday, raising money for the local air ambulance and for the Fire Fighters Charity.

Members of Bouncy Wouncy, sponsers, supporters and Fireman Sam will be at Kettering's The Warren pub on Stamford Road this weekend to attempt a world record for the longest continuous time jumping on a bouncy castle.

Event organiser Dan Folgate, said the team of eight are hoping to bounce for 30-hours straight as they bid to raise around £4,000 for charity, and break the world record for the longest amount of time bouncing on a bouncy castle in the process.

The event is being ran by Bouncy Wouncy, Mr Folgate’s bouncy castle business, and started at 10am today. The team are looking to bounce until around 6pm on Sunday August 4, by which time they would’ve broken the world record.

Fundraising is going on throughout the day at the pub and there is also a bouncy castle for children to have fun on.
