A group of north east business women are attempting to build the world’s largest ragdoll with the help of the region’s children.
The Guinness Book of Records attempt was initiated by business entrepreneur and Virgin Ambassador Maria Albertson, the owner of Ragheroes, a company which makes ragdolls for boys and girls.
The project has seen children from all over the north east design their own piece of the ragdoll by painting a fabric square. Each child’s square represents a hope, wish or dream for the future.
The ragdoll will be completed by the end of April at the Headway Arts Centre in Blyth, Northumberland where an opening event will take place.
Maria Albertson said: “I’m very proud of being from the north east and I have received so much help and support over the years from so many fabulous local people that I wanted to give something back.”
Any businesses or individuals that would like to make a small donation towards the opening event please contact Maria Albertson through the Ragheroes website at www.ragheroes.co.uk
