DERRY “BRIDES” BID FOR NEW WORLD RECORD TODAY
Derry brides and brides-to-be will this afternoon don their gowns in an attempt to beat their own world record.
Last year, 748 brides – with a few men thrown in – pulled on wedding dresses and walked across the city’s Peace Bridge in aid of the Foyle Hospice, and in doing so entered the Guinness Book of Records.
Now, the organisers are hoping to beat that achievement with another “Brides Across the Bridge” to take place this afternoon, with the Hospice once again the main benefactor.
This event was created by a group of local woman in memory of a beloved husband who passed away in 2012 but had benefited from the services provided by Foyle Hospice throughout his illness.
“Brides,” both female and female, are asked to pay £10 and are asked to meet in Derry’s Guildhall Square at 3.00pm.
