Derry World Record Breakers

10 December, 2007

Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Martina Anderson has congratulated everyone involved in the 10,001 Santa World record attempt which took place in Derry on Sunday.

Ms Anderson said:

"Unbelievable, is the only way I can describe the response of the people of Derry and those who travelled from across the island of Ireland plus the hundreds who came out to line the streets of the city centre in support of Sundays World record event for 10,001 Santa's.

"It was an honour as a public representative to have been part of this World record breaking feat. This event galvanised people of all ages, walks of life, political persuasions and none. Its shows what can be done as a city if we all work together. Sundays event send out a vibrant, positive message about Derry and its people across the world.

"Martin Mullan and all his team who have been the driving force behind this event cannot be thanked enough for all their hard work an for having the vision for making Sundays world record a reality and raising thousands of pounds for four very worthwhile local charities." ENDS
