The first ever Dulwich Strongman competition raised more than £1,800 for Great Ormond Street Hospital on May 21, with a world strongman competition legend taking part.

Jon Valgeir Williams, who represented Iceland in two World’s Strongest Man competitions, decided to come down and flex his muscles to help raise money.

Organiser Stephen Hill said: “Jon Valgeir Williams came and was a competitor. It was great to watch him.

“We raised about £1,800 for Great Ormond Street Hospital where my cousin’s sons visit for check-ups as they both have kidney disease.

“It took us four hours to get 21 competitors doing all six events, aged from fourteen-years-old to about 45-years-old.

“There were about 60 people who came to watch during the event.”
