STRONGMAN Geoff Capes will open the annual Leonard Cheshire Home summer fete later this month.
The athlete, double winner of the World's Strongest Man title, worked at the Manor when it was used as the police headquarters during his time as a police officer in Brampton in the 1980s.
He will open the fete at the Manor Cheshire Home in Brampton at midday on Sunday May 31. The day will include a barbecue, a bouncy castle, licensed bar and tombola, and Shrek will also be making a guest appearance.
Geoff Capes was twice the world's strongest man, three times Europe's and Britain's strongest man, and an Olympic shot-putter for Great Britain. He spent many years living in Brampton while working as a police officer, and now lives in Lincolnshire where he trains young athletes and breeds budgerigars.
