A TETRAPLEGIC Lake District man is to mark five years since the cycling accident that caused his spinal injury by ascending Snowdon with the help of a team of family and friends.

Will Clark, of Grasmere, will be using a specially-adapted chair to be pushed up the mountain, and hopes to raise £5,000 for spinal injury charity Back-Up Trust in the process.

The chair is now ready, meaning the intrepid expedition can take place this weekend.


Will said: "This is a charity I cannot speak highly enough about. I don't know where I would be without their continued support."

Donations can be made on JustGiving. The name of the project is 'Get Will up a Hill 2017'.
