A CHARITY hopes people will don their fairy wings to help it break a world record.

Anna’s Hope, which gives support to families of children with brain injuries, will host a picnic at Burghley Park on Sunday, August 19.

Founder Carole Hughes wants people to come along dressed as fairies to break the Guinness World Record for the number of fairies in one place.

The charity was founded by Carole and her husband Rob, of Pilsgate, in 2006 after their daughter Anna died of a brain tumour aged just three years and eight months.

The Anna’s Hope fairy logo was inspired by Anna’s love of the mythical creatures and Carol regularly dresses up in a fairy outfit for fundraising events.

To qualify as a fairy you will need to wear a set of fairy wings, a tutu or dress and a wand. Anyone dressed as a fairy on the day will get half price admission into the Garden of Surprises.

All fairies will need to register before the picnic. Visit for a form.
