Lincoln strongman will pull 18-tonne lorry to raise money for The Salvation Army

“Everyone deserves a Christmas meal.”

Lincoln strongman Dave Johnson will pull an 18-tonne lorry to raise money for The Salvation Army and an ill child.

Dave will pull the lorry at ONE NK in North Hykeham at 2:30pm on Saturday, December 16.

He is raising money for ill child Felicity Buckley as well as Birdies Snack Shack, who will be feeding homeless people this Christmas.

The 18-tonne lorry Dave will be pulling.

Earlier on in the year, Dave pulled a truck and two firefighters raising money for a number of charities.

Dave will once again be doing this charity event in memory of his good friend Mark Browne who passed away in 2012 after a battle with cancer.

Dave told The Lincolnite: “Everyone deserves a Christmas meal, however it’s easy to get in a situation where you end up homeless.

“Many young people end up there due to abuse or poor home life, it becomes a downward spiral and it’s difficult to make a start to improve when people are content to not help and step on people to get where they want to get.

“Through my time on the door of Revolution, I saw many homeless people through the year, some young some old, many polite and would wish a safe night.”
