TRADING Standards officers completed a gruelling 832 press ups in half an hour to raise more than £1,000 for charity.
The mammoth feat took place at their council headquarters at Backford Hall.
The money will go to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd
Investigations and complaints team leader Andrew Rees, of Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Trading Standards team was joined by enforcement officer Dave Atherton and investigations lead officer Keith Fishwick.
“We found a programme to train ourselvesŠ to do a hundred press ups,” said Andrew.
“Dave’s wife is a volunteer at the Hospice so it seemed a good idea between us do as many press ups we could do in relay in half an hour and at the same time raise funds.”
