Here's how to get involved

1. Join our event page. Let us know you are taking part by visiting our Facebook event page. Click ‘Going’, we can then keep you updated in the run up to the event.

2. Start sharing. Share our event page on your social media channels and please invite your friends – we need as many videos of people wanging their wellies as possible.

On the day

3. Wang your welly! To take part, all you’ll need to do is get a welly and your phone camera at the ready. Film yourself wanging your welly for Yorkshire. Everyone in your household can get involved by sending in their own videos, each counts as an entry.

4. Upload your video. There’s a tight time slot for entries to qualify for the world record attempt. All welly wanging videos MUST be uploaded to the event Facebook page between 2 and 3 pm on Saturday August 1st.

Make it count

5. Make a donation. 594 people are diagnosed with cancer every week in Yorkshire. Help them to give cancer the boot for good by donating £5 for every welly you wang. Donate here.

Where can you wang?

It goes without saying that you’re going to need a wide open space. (Luckily, Yorkshire’s full of them!) But do play it safe. Avoid wanging anywhere near cars, windows, passers-by and priceless antique vases. And please get the landowner’s permission before wanging your welly.

Stay safe and get involved

Because this is a virtual world record, you can stay safe and join in without needing to leave your home. All you need is a welly, enough space to throw and someone to help you film your record-breaking attempt. If you’re not a Facebook whiz, ask a friend or relative to help you upload your video to our Facebook event page between 2-3 p.m. on August 1st.

Be a record breaker!

Grab your boots and give what you can – donate or just join in. Come on Yorkshire, let’s give cancer the boot.
