A weightlifting competition, held in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday, raised around £200 for military charity Help for Heroes.

The Charity Deadlift Competition hosted five weight categories – the ladies’ open (no weight limit), men’s under 80kg, men’s under 90kg, men’s under 105kg and men’s open – with around 35 participants taking part on the day.

Ainsley Neilly, managing director of Powerhouse Performance, which organised the event in Cornhill Walk, said as a whole it had gone well but he had expected to see bigger crowds.

Hopeful of holding another competition, he said: “Everyone who competed was really happy and a lot said they would do it again so hopefully we can do another one in October, again for Help for Heroes, and make it even bigger this time.”
