MANILA, Philippines, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Guinness World Records confirmed a retired woman in the Philippines collected 1,030 jigsaw puzzles to break the world record.

The record keeping organization said Gina Gil Lacuna, 61, of Manila, amassed her collection at her family's bed and breakfast, The Puzzle Mansion, and shattered the record of 238 puzzles set by Luiza Figuereido of Brazil, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported Thursday.

Lacuna said she has spent three to four hours per day assembling the puzzles during the past 26 years. She said her collection is still growing and she is planning to donate some of the puzzles to cancer patients.
