Late on a busy Friday afternoon the Today Team sales office received a phone call from a client with a challenging request that involved numerous timed deliveries in all areas of the country. It was vital that the items were delivered as they were playing a part in a World Record attempt that weekend! After the initial phone call the client e-mailed the list of deliveries and the operations department sprung into action and co-ordinated multiple vehicles to collect and deliver the next morning before 12:00
The items being delivered played a part in The Giant Sleepover- www.giantsleepover.com. It was an attempt to break The Guinness World Record for the ‘biggest simultaneous sleepover across multiple locations’ and involved children from The Brownies, The Scouts, The St John Ambulance Badgers and many, many more children’s groups from around the country.
All the deliveries were made on time and the client was very pleased with the professional manner in which the project was completed. There was also great news the following week when it was announced that the world record was broken beating the previous year’s record of 33,093!
