Tetraplegic man ascends Snowdon and raises thousands for spinal injury charity

A TETRAPLEGIC Grasmere man has raised thousands of pounds for a spinal injury charity by ascending Snowdon with the help of friends and a specially adapted chair.

Will Clark took on the challenge for Back-Up Trust, who helped him after he was paralysed in a cycling accident. His effort, which he called ‘Get Will Up a Hill’, has raised over £7,500 so far. The original target was £5,000.

The event, which saw 13 different teams make it up and down the hill for the charity, raised £72,000 in total.
