Strongest disabled man supports NHS

Gary Clarke

Something tells us people don’t mock Gary Clarke’s disability, especially as he holds the title of being the UK’s first ever disabled strongman and the founder of Britain’s Disabled Strongman Competition.

After this year’s contest was cancelled because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic Gary has set his sights raising cash for the NHS instead.

Gary, who has cerebral palsy, intends to lift a stone ball weighing in at 60kg 250 times between two steel drums.

His challenge will run from May 11 to May 15.

He told ITV News: “I sat there training yesterday and thought 'I am going to be here training anyway, so I may as well be productive too and give something back to the NHS. I think it is important and it is the best way I know how to do that, so everyone is a winner!”

Mr Clarke is raising money for Love Musgrove on behalf of Musgrove Park Hospital.

You can make a donation via Gary Clarke’s JustGiving page.
