But that's not the only achievement for PMT this year. They sponsored the 'Stick it to MS' world record breaking drum attempt at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena, raising over £50,000 for the MS Society.

A total of 582 drummers - including a number of celebrity musicians - smashed the previous world record of 533 drummers, set in the United States.

The charity event, called Stick It To MS, has so far raised over £50,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Drummers as young as five and as old as 50 travelled from across the UK to take part in the record bid, believed to be the UK's first attempt.

A number of special guest drummers joined in, including Slade's Don Powell and Cold Feet and Coronation Street actor John Thomson.
