IT may look like hard work, but it was all for a good cause.

The 2013 Oxfordshire Charity Strongman Event took place in Banbury on Sunday.

The event was hosted at EP Gym in aid of Oxfordshire Playbus, a mobile recreational facility for children.

The feats included an eight-ton truck pull and a car dead lift, above.

Matt Ingram, 22, who works at a gym, said: “It was a fantastic day and there was a great turn out.

“I have worked in gyms all my life so training has always been part of what I have done.”
