Pull a cracker, beat a world record and help the Simon Community

Carphone Warehouse and the Simon Community will attempt to break the world record for the highest number of simultaneous Christmas cracker pulls, this December 2nd on Hanover Quay, Grand Canal, Dublin 2. The event will take place at 12.30 pm and is open to the public to join in.
The record currently stands at 1,478, and they are aiming to top that by achieving 1,600 cracker pulls at once. If the record is broken, Carphone Warehouse will donate “a generous amount” to the Simon Community.
As well as the world record attempt, Carphone Warehouse is donating all profits from its annual in-store gift-wrap to the charity. That means a 50c donation for each and every gift that’s wrapped. It will further donate €1 for every new fan on its Facebook page until they hit 22,000. Carphone Warehouse hopes to raise over €10,000 for the Simon Community through this initiative.
Carphone Warehouse extends an invitation to the public to take part in the record breaking attempt. On the day, there will be treats available for anyone who takes part, in addition to Christmas carol sing-along with some special Irish music acts.
