Robert: British students set new Guinness record for largest blanket fort
Students at a British university have been awarded a Guinness World Record after constructing the world’s largest blanket fort.
Guinness World Records announced the Warwick University team successfully broke the world record after putting together 4,651.73-square-foot fort. The previous record was 3,303.44 square feet.
The record attempt, which was inspired by an episode of Community, also raised money for the LWS Night Shelter charity.
“The organizers needed someone to help out at the last minute and I was more than happy to step in and do my bit,” a participant said. “The LWS Shelter does a fantastic job of proving food, shelter and company to homeless and vulnerable people so was a very worthy cause to support.”
