30 thrill streakers shed their inhibitions and their clothes
last weekend (25th March) to set the 'Most Naked People
to play a Miniature Golf Course in One Hour' World Record AND
raise £3000 for charity.
Pitch and Butt took place
at Adventure Island on Southend seafront, and generated vital funds
and awareness for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
Adventure Island Managing Director Marc Miller says "It's been
an absolutely superb day with people all enjoying the chance to do
something memorable, have good fun and raise a large amount of
money for a fantastic, charity, of which we are proud to be
patrons. People have travelled from all over the UK to take part
and we've heard some amazing stories from so many who have been
directly, or indirectly, affected by cancer and wanted to give
something back. I am really proud Adventure Island could offer them
this opportunity. And as Southend is officially the warmest and
driest part of the UK - we enjoyed superb weather for those brave
souls stripping off!"
Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at The Prostate Cancer
Charity says "There is nothing wrong with naked ambition especially
when it's for such a worthwhile cause. We are incredibly proud to
have been part of such a fantastic, record breaking, day. It is
wonderful to see so many people joining together to tackle this
once neglected disease. We are truly in awe of the courageous
characters who bared all in the name of prostate cancer and cannot
thank them enough."
Appropriately, the UK's number one free admission fun park is
already a naked World Record-breaking venue - 102 people stripped
off to set the record for 'Most Naked People on a Rollercoaster' (8
August 2010). The park also holds the record for the World's
Largest Portion of Chips (448kg, 29 June 2011).
