SNAPSHOT: Stir it up

Christine and Neil Hamilton were among a host of celebrities who helped to stir a 3m-diameter wok holding 705kg of vegetables in London's Leicester Square last Friday.

TV chef Nancy Lam (third from right) joined celebrities and 12 other chefs in cooking the dish for six hours, in order to secure an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the world's largest stir-fry. The stunt was held to raise awareness of 'The Great Walk of China 2004' event in aid of children's charity NCH. Over 6,000 leaflets were handed out with the stir-fry, asking the public to join the 4,000 kilometre walk, which starts this April in the Gobi Desert and ends six months later by the Yellow Sea. One fundraiser, Karen Churches, pictured left of Lam, will complete the distance while others will take two-week shifts.
