Teams of eight to 10 can now enter the competition organised by St Elizabeth Hospice this summer.

Suffolk’s Strongest Man Graham Reid, who is also the catering manager for the hospice based in Foxhall Road, demonstrated his strength at a media launch for the event yesterday.

All proceeds from the event, which takes place on Saturday, July 18, will be given to the hospice.

Rachael Brown, fundraising support manager for the hospice, said: “We wanted to hold a fun, team event to encourage a bit of friendly competition but to organise something a bit different and we took inspiration from Suffolk’s Strongest Man – our catering manager, Graham Reid.

Teams can be male, female or mixed. Each team is asked to raise sponsorship.
