A 28-year-old gym addict is determined to get back to lifting weights despite suffering a stroke last year and cancer this year.

Former Plume School pupil Andrew Wright used to spend more time at the Old Iron Works gym in Maldon than at home, according to his mum Angela.

In recognition of Andrew’s brave health battle, gym owner Adrian Francis has given him free membership to his fitness centre in Fullbridge, and the gym is also producing a calendar with the proceeds going to a charity of Andrew’s choice.
