Youngsters invited to help set new world record

A north east entrepreneur is calling on people from Blyth to help set a new world record.

Youngsters from around the region are teaming up with Project Rag Doll, by Maria Albertson from Whitley Bay-based RagHeroes, to make the world’s biggest rag doll, which will eventually stand at over 28ft high.

To build the doll, children from around the north east will draw, sew and paint their hopes and dreams onto small pieces of fabric which will then be stitched together to create the huge doll.

The Creation Station in Blyth is organising an event to create a square at the Keel Row Shopping Centre in Blyth, between 11am and 4pm on Sunday, July 7.

Youngsters can come along and paint a square of fabric for the project.
