STUDENTS and staff at Christleton High School are awaiting official confirmation from the Guinness Book of Records following their record attempt for the world’s biggest game of tag.
Nearly 800 players took part in the bid on Friday, attempting to smash the existing record of 465 people, set in Canada last year.
The event, organised by the school’s head boy and head girl team and supported by the PE department, saw 796 involved and the event raised £500 for Leukaemia Research.
Year 8 pupil Tom Croft was the ultimate victor, but the event also saw one player suffering a broken collar bone in the melee.
Head girl Abbey Lister said: “We’re absolutely thrilled the event was so well supported.
“All the evidence and supporting statements have now been sent off to the Guinness Books of Records and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll be the new world record holders!”
