Never Ovary Acting - Guinness World Record for Longest Line of Sanitary Pads

Aston Panthers Netball Club  is officially holding the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the longest line of sanitary pads!!! ??????


The line was 1888.9 metres long, which is equivalent to approximately 20 football pitches or the same distance as walking from the Students’ Union to the Library of Birmingham!

"Who would have thought a conversation with Ellie back in freshers week about our periods would make us Guinness World Record holders!
I never dreamt that my final week at Aston University would make Aston Panthers and Never Ovary Acting Guinness World Record holders. It’s crazy to think that this campaign name and the club is on the Guinness website! What a journey it’s been!" - Jemma Hennighan, Vice Chair of Aston Panthers Netball Club

The sanitary pads were collected through donations from students and the general public.

"We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported the Never Ovary Acting campaign...20,320 pads, 1888.9 metres, 68 volunteers, 8 hours, and one SMASHED Guinness World Record. I’m so proud of Jemma and the girls and this amazing achievement." - Ellie Chambers, VP Welfare 2019/20

The 20,320 pads will be split between Aston University's campus, placed in all bathroom facilities, and Birmingham and Solihull Women's aid charity.

Congratulations on this amazing result! Absolutely brilliant work! ??????
