Hundreds of redheads might have gathered at ginger pride rallies and record attempts in other cities but where else is more appropriate than Orange?
Rachael Brooking is planning to start big – with a Guinness World Records attempt on getting the most redheads in one place.
The red-letter day is September 30 when a four-hour festival of all things red will be celebrated at Wade Park – culminating in the attempt to better the current record which stands at 1672.
Mrs Brooking said it would raise money for research into Huntington’s disease which claimed her mother Frances Kelly, also a redhead.
She said she had just launched the festival and was still working on getting famous redheads and sponsors to attend.
“I’ve had a really good response so far,” she said.
