Dale Brooks and his mighty space hopper.

Bouncing in to the record books...

Published:  01 June, 2010

RUNCORN: Progressive Solutions’ Dale Brooks is hoping to break the world record for the most people simultaneously bouncing on space hoppers in one location at this year’s V festival.

Mr Brooks, who is responsible for first line support to merchants at the software company, said, “Someone gave me a space hopper as a house warming present and I decided to take it to V as a useful seat/pillow. Then I thought wouldn’t it be great if everyone brought along their space hoppers and we used the day before the music starts to try to break the world record! The festival organisers have been really supportive and have given us a space to bounce in.”

The world record currently stands at 1250 bouncers and Mr Brooks already has 800 people committed to joining his record breaking attempt with new bouncers signing up every day.

Mr Brooks wants any merchants going to V this year to bring their space hoppers along and help him get into the record books. Search for 'V Festival 2010 Spacehopper Friday!!' on Facebook and follow Seymour Hoppers, the official mascot of Space Hopper Friday at twitter.com/seymourhoppers.
