Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai Creates The Largest Ball Pit In The World

On 30 October, the Kerry Hotel Pudong in Shanghai has created Guinness World Records™ Largest Ball Pit in the world.  This event has also concluded the month-long Kerry Hotel’s “Pink October” campaign with a success.

The hotel has emptied its swimming pool (25 metre in length and 12.6 metre in width) and filled it up with one million pink and green bubble balls overnight.  This has successfully broken the existing record both in pool size and amount of balls.  The bubble balls went on sale from 1 October at the Hotel and throughout the community, and proceeds from the sale will benefit breast cancer education, awareness and action.

It is also the third year that Kerry Hotel joins hands with “More Than Aware”. With the support from “More Than Aware”, three hundreds of the guests that are recovering cancer patients volunteered from Shanghai Cancer Recovery Club entered the Largest Ball Pit at the same time.

“This is a record breaking achievement at Kerry Hotel Pudong,” says Peter Clarke, General Manager of the hotel, “In our daily operations, we are committed to provide our guests with a fresh and unsurpassed experience while maintaining an active corporate social responsibility calendar. This year, we’ve launched a Pink October activities campaign throughout October. We believe that this initiative helps in spreading awareness across both the local and expatriate population and encouraging women to be proactive in the prevention of breast cancer.”

In line with “Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” besides the record breaking event on 30 October, Kerry Hotel Pudong has also developed a daily calendar that offers special Pink October promotions and fun activities, including Pink Bazaar and “Pledge Your Ponytail” hair-cutting event, Pink Cider at The BREW, Pink Sunday Brunch at The COOK, Pink facial at The Spa, Pink exercise classes at the Kerry Sports and more.
