New keepy uppy world record benefits SOS Children


Over 650 children from schools up and down the country took part in a world record attempt organised by The FA and englandfans, the official England fan club, breaking a seven year old world record and raising money for SOS Children’s “6 villages for 2006” World Cup campaign.

The action all kicked off simultaneously at 11am on Wednesday 26 April at 10 locations around England, when a record 459 children successfully ball juggled for 10 seconds and set a new keepy uppy world record.

As one of The FA’s Official Charity Partners for 2006, money raised from the event is being generously donated to SOS Children’s “6 villages for 2006” campaign, giving orphaned and abandoned children around the world a new family home and hope for the future.

SOS Children would like to thank all the children and the 16 schools that took part in the attempt, as well as the organisers, for their support and congratulate them on their success!
