A PETITION to award a Barnsley resident a Guinness World Record for his fundraising efforts has reached the 1,000-signature mark.

It was created to help Paul Goose become recognised for the longest consecutive days playing The Last Post on Bugle.

He has played the tune every night since March and even got a mention in the Houses of Parliament when Barnsley East MP, Stephanie Peacock, spoke about his efforts.

The petition now stands at 1,076 signatures - to sign it visit https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/give-paul-goose-his-guinness-world-record.
