A mum of three from Widdington has taken on a charity challenge set by Marie Curie.
Diane Emsden, 58, took on the end-of-life care charity's fundraising challenge to complete 3,000 press-ups throughout May.
She said the challenge is testing her physical limits for a cause which has been hit hard by Covid-19.
Diane said: "I like a challenge and saw that Marie Curie was advertising its 3,000 Press-ups in May fundraiser.
"Despite being fairly fit this will test my limits."

Diane now hopes to smash the 3,000 target.
She started off completing roughly 100 press-ups every day, but is trying to double her efforts.

The charity said it has seen first-hand the challenges and distress around comforting dying people and saying goodbye to loved ones during the pandemic.
The charity believes Covid-19 has made it more challenging to care for patients, particularly around keeping patients' families and friends involved in care.
