Some 260 people taking part in an attempt at the world record for a Swiss Ball class at David Lloyd Leisure Centre in Swindon.

On Saturday October 1st, Excalibur Communications of Swindon is set to make a second attempt at a world record, as well as see if it can beat the £10,000 it raised in 2014 for a state-of-the-art teenage cancer facility.

The IT and Communications provider for business needs 500 people to help get it over the line for the largest number of participants in a Swiss Ball exercise, after coming agonisingly close to the world record first time around. This new attempt marks the launch of the Younite Foundation, a registered charity that provides support and life changing opportunities for local children and young adults (up to the age of 21).

“We want everyone to enjoy themselves and raise lots of money, just like we did in 2014”, said Younite Trustee, Karen Thornley, “but this time round we really want Swindon to embrace Team GB’s fantastic Olympic spirit and show everyone what we’re made of by setting a new world record”.

Excalibur CEO James Phipps, Trustee and the driving force behind the Younite Foundation, added: “Younite trustees have selected three amazing causes to support with this years’ event including Jessie May, a Children’s Hospice at Home. We are very grateful to David Lloyd Clubs for once again supporting this event, whilst Excalibur Communications will sponsor the staging costs.”
