Players hit the wall for charity climb

A trio of Worcester Warriors with a head for heights literally hit the wall during pre-season – as they helped scale the equivalent height of Kilimanjaro for charity.

Alex Grove, Matt Kvesic and Andy Short joined fundraisers at Vertical Limit in Shrub Hill to help them achieve 500 climbs of the wall in just over three hours!

The money was being raised by Robert Young and his friend Matthew for MARS – M (ercia) A (ccident) R (escue) S (ervice) – and the event helped collect £1,000.
