Teams of people put themselves through the pain barrier for a good cause as they pulled eight-ton trucks along a village street.
The Welland Valley Charity Truck Pull Challenge in Medbourne yesterday (Bank Holiday Monday) raised money for a trust fund set up in memory of soldier Lee Rigby, who was killed in Woolwich earlier this year.
Proceeds from the event will also be shared among good causes in the village.
Trades on the Pull won the event, which saw teams pull the truck - on loan from Harborough-based Stephen Sanderson Transport - along a one-mile route on Drayton Road.
Other teams taking part in the gruelling challenge included the Bewicke Arms pub, Team Power Towers, Girls on the Pull, Queens Head in Sutton Bassett, FCC and Medbourne Shop and Post Office.
Soldiers from the Royal Artillery Barracks, where Pte Rigby had been based, also took part and the event was attended by the soldier’s widow and young son.
The event also featured live music and entertainment.
