A Liverpool secondary school successfully set a new Guinness World Record for the most number of people dressed as a dog at one time.

Staff and students from North Liverpool Academy, in Everton took part in the fancy dress event hoping to beat the previous record of 275 people. In total, 455 people gathered in their onesies and black and white face paint to participate in the world record.

Karen Walker from Liverpool Schools Sport Partnership was on hand to officially count the Dalmatians and ensure all participants qualified – all outfits had to have a nose and ears.

The event, attended by Lord Mayor councillor Erica Kemp, raised an impressive £1,000 which will be split amongst many local charities, including the Benevolent Fund for Merseyside Retired Police Dogs, Changing Lives on Our Door Step (CLOUD) in

Widnes and the Missionaries of Charity Homeless Shelter in Liverpool city centre.

Andrew Devey, the school’s extended services co-ordinator, said: “Pretty much every pupil has dressed up and most of the teachers have participated – so we’ve had classes with everyone in their Dalmatian onesies.

“It’s been an amazing day. Everyone has been very excited about it and they have really got into it.”

Rebecca Jones, marketing manager at North Liverpool Academy, added: “It’s great for our kids that they will be able to say they’re world record holders. It has been such a fantastic end to a great year for the school”.
