At noon Saturday, after 25 hours of ukulele playing, Glenn Haworth earned himself his second world record and a lot of money for charity.
The Kiama Downs resident started his world record bid at 11am on Friday at the Fairy Meadow Haworth’s Music store.
There was no official ukulele-playing record but the people at Guinness said they’d give Mr Haworth the record if he played for 24 hours.
He played for 25 hours, just to be sure.
It’s Haworth’s second world record - his first came in 2009 for the most guitar strings changed in one hour.
Mr Haworth said that his body held up pretty well after 25 hours of uke-playing.
‘‘The fingers are feeling pretty good,’’ he said.
‘‘My shoulders are little bit sore, my back’s a little bit sore but other that that it’s pretty good. I started to get sore about eight hours in and then after that point my body just pushed through it.’’
The successful world record attempt was also a fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation.
Between online pledges, in-store donations and an auction held after Mr Haworth broke the record as much as $10,000 was raised for the charity.
