Drumming up money for charity

A team of 35 drummers are continuing with their world record attempt for the ‘longest marathon drumming by a team’ this afternoon as they raise money for 3 dental health charities.

The group, led by oral health campaigner and drummer Ian Aguado-Bush, is participating in a 70 hour drummathon in aid of Bridge2Aid, Heart Your Smile and The British Dental Health Foundation.

The record attempt is taking place at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford.  Each of the 35 participating drummers is required to drum for 2 hours in order to break the current record of 66 hours of continuous drumming.

Ian, Founder of oral health campaign ‘clean my teeth’ commented: "I'm so excited to bring together my two passions – drumming and dentistry. We'll be supporting the Clean My Teeth campaign and raising money for the British Dental Health Foundation, Bridge2Aid and Heart Your Smile.’

Henry Schein Vice President, Patrick Allen, who took part in the drummathon and played for 2 hours enthused: ‘It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the world record attempt.  It’s an amazing experience – some of the drummers are seriously world class.  Congratulations to Ian Aguado-Bush for hosting such a successful event.’

The world record attempt began at 12pm on Wednesday 10th July and will wrap up on Saturday 13th July at 11am. Live streaming of the event may be viewed here and supporters may sponsor the drummers raising money for Bridge2Aid by clicking here.
