Men’s underwear of all designs, shapes and sizes was on show at Bury St. Edmunds’ Nowton Park on Sunday.

The revealing display was in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Load of Pants Walk - a fundraising men-only event where participants are challenged to walk a five-kilometre course dressed as a superhero or wearing their undergarments over their trousers.

Several Batmen could be seen taking part along with a Robin, one or two Supermen and a muscle-bound He-Man.

Along the way the 25 or so male competitors had to negotiate a number of exercise challenges including a star jump challenge while a supportive crowd of wives, girlfriends, family and friends cheered from the sidelines.

This is the second year the Hospice has held the event which, according to the Hospice’s community fundraising manager Georgina Carr, raised over £5,000 in sponsorship money this time round.

She said: “Everyone look absolutely fabulous in their outfits. Thank you to everyone who took part.”
