The team from Progressive Property, led by Rob Moore smashed their own World Record for the longest team talk yesterday.

The record, which was broken at the firm’s Hampton base last year, had stood at 117 hours - but yesterday the talk concluded at an incredible 126 hours and 28 minutes.

They raised a total of £115,000 for Sue Ryder - and are hoping to have reached £150,000 by the time all the sponsorship money has been collected.

It was Rob’s third world record, as he also currently holds the longest individual speech target as well.

The team celebrated their latest achievement with a specially baked cake.
