Bristolian to tackle Mount Everest for Wooden Spoon charity

Bristolian Ben Harvey will attempt a record breaking climb of Mount Everest to raise funds for Wooden Spoon - the children's charity of rugby.

Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby, funding life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage.

Ben - alongside former international stars Lee Mears, Shane Williams, Ollie Phillips and Tamara Taylor - is set to tackle Mount Everest in April.

The team aim to break two Guinness World Records: to play the highest game of full contact rugby AND the highest game of touch rugby in history, whilst raising £200,000 for the charity.

The money raised will help fund projects that support children and young people with disabilities and facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland.
