This week’s photograph features kind-hearted weight-lifters in February 1994.

The group, which consisted of nine young men, took part in a pounds for £s charity challenge at Bury St Edmunds Sports Centre.

Using a bench press, they tried to raise as much weight as possible above their body weight.

The highest was achieved by Mr D Pitt, from Great Whelnetham, who raised 47 kilos above his body weight.

They had trained for two months in preparation for the sponsored weight lift, which raised around £500 for the British Heart Foundation.

Are you one of the charitable weight-lifters pictured here?

Perhaps you have a picture of your own that you would like to see appear on this page - either personal, from a business perspective or from a sporting triumph.

You can email your pictures to reporter Laura Smith at laura.smith@buryfreepress.co.uk or send them to Laura at the Bury Free Press. You can also bring them in to our reception in King’s Road.
