SATURDAY'S Where's Wally? event in Great Yarmouth town centre, where it is hoped over 1,000 people will attend dressed as the famous children's book character, gathers pace as purchases of the specially ordered Wally costumes increased dramatically this week.

Town Centre Manager Jonathan Newman said: “We have had plenty of people register on the website that they are planning to take part, but the number of Wally Kits, including the easily identifiable red and white striped t-shirt and bobble hat, we were selling did not reflect this. However, over the last week we have sold hundreds of the Wally Kits as people have come into town to get them ahead of the event on Saturday.”

The aim is to set a new Guinness World record for the most number of people dressed as Wally in one place.

Earlier this year the current record of 1,052 was set in New York, and organisers, the Town Centre Partnership, who are donating �1 to the charity for every person that participates to the Breast Cancer Care Charity, feel confident this can be achieved with room to spare.
