EMPLOYEES of a Mark business felt the strain last week as they pulled a 14-tonne lorry for charity.
Three workers from timber and pallet manufacturers Somerlap, organiser Barry Moody, Mark resident John Swift and Andy Bertenshaw from Highbridge were joined by five members of Revolution Fitness Gym for the stunt on October 30.
They raised £500 for Breast Cancer, the Firefighters’ Benevolent Fund and Motor Neurone Disease by pulling the articulated lorry for half a mile, although more funds are expected.
Mr Moody said: “A massive thanks to everyone who has given so generously, and especially friends and family for their encouragement and support.”
