Students to raise the bar

FITNESS fanatics at Dearne Valley College will be raising the bar for charity - literally.

For students will be attempting to bench press the equivelant weight of a Challenger Tank on December 8 to raise money for the charity: Soldiers. Sailors, Airmen and Families Association. The group will take it in turns to lift 10 and 20 kilo weights until they reach their total of 62, 500 kilos.

Their tutor Emma Barnett said: “They hope to raise £1000 for the charity.”
