Lord Digby Jones made a heavyweight contribution to the House of Lords Tug-of-War team that beat the House of Commons for the first time in 9 years in the annual Lords vs. Commons Tug-of-War match in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Digby said “I had never 'tugged' before and I am very grateful to the Army PTI who gave us all an hours coaching beforehand resulting in no strains or other damage, just a great sense of achievement and satisfaction that those less fortunate than ourselves benefited from a great occasion”.
