Super, Crazy, Busy. I am a mum, writer and online specialist.
Calling all fairies, on Sunday the 27th of November fairies are gathering in the Kyneton Botanic Gardens to try and break the world record of a fairy gathering. To qualify fairies must be wearing a tunic or tutu, wings and wands are a must. The event is being run from 11am to 1pm, with counting for the record being held at 11.30am sharp. Fairies must remain in their outfits for the duration of the counting.

The reason for this event is to raise awareness and money for HeartKids Victoria.

There will be a sausage sizzle, fairy floss and baked potatoes for sale. Also available for purchase will be wands and wings. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed and best group entry of fairy. Raffle tickets for $2 will also be available with some fantastic prizes on offer.

For a gold coin donation there will be face painting and balloons.

The main fairy leading this event is Fiona Rigby. Fiona had a niece who died from a congenital heart defect and she thought this may be a fun way to raise awareness and some money for Heartkids. According to the Heartkids website there are "6 babies born with heart disease today in Australia."

Heartkids provides support for families of children who have heart disease, be it congenital or acquired.

Hopefully more than 500 fairies will be able to smash the current world record of a fairy gathering. More information can be found here.

If you cannot make it but would still like to donate to the cause. Donations can be made at Everyday Hero.
