Nearly 30 people did not cow-er away from the meaty challenge of munching their way through a 4lb burger for charity.

Butcher Ali Dent once again laid down the meaty gauntlet for those with the stomach to take on the Burgermeister challenge.

On Saturday, 14 people attempted to much their way through the 4lb endurance burger while 12 contestants took on the 2lb speedy burger.

Cosmin Voican proved he had the determination by chomping the endurance burger in 2 hours and 18 minutes in Hilgay Village Hall.

While Simon Brooking managed to get through the speedy burger in less than 30 minutes.

Mr Dent, who spent five hours cooking the burgers, said contestants opted for different strategies to make their way through the burgers.

He said: “Some covered the burgers in tomato sauce while others went for mustard. One man even put coke over the top of the burger.

“It was a really good night and I was quite proud of the burgers. I was like a new father.”

The event has raised more than£400 for Mencap and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Peter White, a partially sighted North Lynn resident, raised a total of £206 in sponsorship.

Mr Dent will be holding a charity book sale in Hilgay Village Hall on May 17.
