Students from Tamworth and Lichfield College have been pulling together to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.

The Mayor of Tamworth, Councillor Gerry Pinner, waved off the 17 students who were taking part in a truck pull from Whittington Barracks to St Edithas square in Tamworth.

The three-hour pull began at 7am this morning (November 11) and involved students from the first year public services course.

The event was organised by Kurt Bartlett, Daniel Jones and Ryan Taker.

Cllr Pinner said:

“I am grateful to the Army for helping us in all aspects and the use of one of their front line vehicles.”
