Record breaking naan to raise ‘dough’ for charity
The Service will attempt to break the Guinness World Record of the ‘largest naan bread’ in order to raise money for charity and support the local community at the Eastleigh Mela on 6 July 2014.
The aim is to cook a naan bread at least 3 metres by 1.2 metres. The current record measured 2.89 metres by 1 metre and weighed 9.5 kg (20lb 15oz) as recorded in the Guiness World Records.
Cooking the giant naan is only possible because of the expertise of the USAR guys who have worked really hard to build a special giant oven.
The Eastleigh Mela will take place on Sunday 6 July 2014 (11am – 6pm) at Leigh Road Recreation Ground in Eastleigh.
Dave Curry says: “We have a great tradition of raising money for charity and it is always brilliant to see our staff supporting these events. It’s really exciting to be working with our local restaurants and the Mela to attempt to break a world record”.
HFRS practised making the giant naan ahead of the big day – here’s the result
The record breaking event, sponsored by Serco, will raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, the Water Wells Project and Hampshire Hurricanes.
Badi Mirchi restaurant and Sanjha restaurant both say they are proud to be a part of this event. It is an individual commitment and a group effort to attempt to make the largest naan in the world.
