A grand total of 325 people have waddled their way to a new record for the largest gathering of people dressed as penguins for Guinness World Records Day.

The attempt which took place at London’s Canary Wharf, was organised by the children’s hospice, Richard House.

Commenting on their world record, lead organiser, Hannah Bosley, said: “Absolutely incredible! We’ll be going into the record books which will help to raise awareness of the vital work we do in caring for and supporting families whose children and young adults have life-limiting health care needs.”

Under the rules for the record, each participant needed to be dressed in a full, head to toe penguin outfit that needed to consist of a beakalong with a black and white bodysuit and webbed feet.
