Norwich based specialist events business, Right Angle Events, got more than 18,000 school children to identifying fingerprints as part of a world record attempt to raise funds for children and young people with cancer.
The family owned and managed business, specialises in team building and corporate entertainment experiences which give an insight into the world of crime, intrigue and CSI.
The world record attempt to identify fingerprints was the company’s largest to date educational project and raised a fantastic £500 for CLIC Sargent and a further £500 for the Norwich Foodbank.
Founder of Right Angle Events and former Scotland Yard detective, Steve Gaskin, said: “It was great to have the opportunity to engage students and promote science in an applied setting, encouraging and inspiring young people of all abilities, whilst raising funds for two extremely important causes.”
The world record attempt took place during National Science Week with the finger print packs that were distributed to schools across the country, including a donation to CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “We are delighted to have such great support from Right Angle Events.
"Last year in East Anglia alone, CLIC Sargent supported 136 families, so Right Angle Events’ fundraising is so important to help us to continue supporting children and their families here in Norfolk, and across the UK.”
