Customers at the Travis Perkins branch in Daventry got down to some serious fundraising activity this week.
For one day, the branch’s regular clientele of tradespeople tried their hand at The Travis Perkins Planking challenge - by holding the horizontal ‘plank’ position for as long as they could.
The fun challenge saw dozens of customers and staff take part, some several times, with the winning ‘plank’ being held for an impressive 6 minutes and 20 seconds by Mike Crumpton.
With each customer paying £1 to take part, a total of £160 has been raised so far for The Woodland Trust.
Travis Perkins branch manager Andrew Hunt says: “Travis Perkins have always been known for being good with wood - and it turns out our customers are pretty limber with timber, too."
“The planking challenge was a great way for us to interact with our customers, have a laugh and raise lots of money for charity at the same time. Thanks to everyone who took part.”
