Jul 27 2010 by Alison Anderson, Perthshire Advertiser Tuesday A PERTH womanâ€™s ambitious attempt to drive the city into the Guinness Book of Records â€“ for the most people fitting into a Mini Cooper â€“ got so near until her army of intrepid volunteers were defeated by the stifling heat within the vehicle. The world record was within Fiona Munroâ€™s grasp, with just three more to squash in the new-style Mini Cooper to beat the existing world record of 24. But with the heat of Saturday afternoon proving the eventual winner, Fiona remained buoyant at the â€˜so near yet so farâ€™ outcome of her record-breaking attempt. â€œWe were so close. The day had not been without its problems but everyone who took part in the attempt all wanted to succeed. Because we were so close I would seriously consider having another try,â€ said Fiona. The Mini squash was part of an Inspire charity event outside Perth Concert Hall organised by mum Fiona (42) and aimed at motivating and inspiring local young people. She decided to organise the event after completing an access to humanity course at Perth College. â€œThe turnout was not fantastic but people enjoyed the event and were inspired by the workshops. The graffiti workshop was particularly successful.â€ Fionaâ€™s chosen charity was Sponsor An Orphan in Africa, and although Inspire was a one-off event, Fiona vowed to keep fund-raising for that cause. She thanked everyone who had volunteered for the record attempt with special thanks to Grassicks of Perth which provided the Mini Cooper for the occasion.
