Record breaking game of hide and seek confirmed
A GAME of hide and seek has landed Bassingbourn Village College in the Guinness Book of Records.
The record-breaking challenge saw 508 people creep and camouflage themselves around the campus to raise money and awareness for Amnesty International.
Bassingbourn Village College’s Amnesty International group led the charge in July to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the charity - which aids political prisoners.
Now Guinness World Records has confirmed this as a record.
The Amnesty group is Kate Lindsey, Mae Taylor, Sasha Ellis, Hannah Jeffries, Alex Brace, Emma Lindsey, and Florence Goater.
