Dulwich’s strongest men will pull a car 60m as part of the Dulwich Strongman on Saturday, to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and for Lymes disease.

With the first ever competition taking place in May raising more than £1,800 for charity, and seeing strongman legend, Jon Valgeir Williams contend, this month they hope to smash their record.

Organiser Stephen Hill, who is raising money for GOSH because his cousin’s sons both go there for kidney disease check-ups, said:

“Jon Valgeir Williams, an ex-strongest man finalist is, competing again, and my cousin, whom gave his kidney to his son is coming again to compete and enjoy the spectacular event.

“We have about twenty competitors, and want as many spectators as possible. The car pull looks the most exciting event – pulling a car will be great to watch!

“I’m hoping to get as much money for charity as possible and to have a great time with the College sports club members.”
