New heights reached by NHS workers and families at free Westside event

Scores of NHS workers and their families had a great free day out ‘climbing the walls’ on Westside.

The special event at Rock Up, the UK’s leading fun family climbing company, was held on Monday 24 August at its various locations, including Broadway Plaza in Birmingham.

After announcing the scheme to thank hard-working NHS staff, all spaces were snapped up at Rock Up’s seven locations in just a few hours.

Mark de Quervain, sales and marketing director for Rock Up, said: “The day was a huge success, with everyone reaching ‘new heights’ and having ‘mountains of fun’ together!

“Seriously, we’re so pleased everyone had such a fun time, and it was great to be able to give a huge Rock Up thank you to our wonderful NHS workers and their families.

“It was the least we could do to say thank you after months of incredible hard and stressful work they’ve done, often enduring very long hours away from their families and loved ones.”

Rock Up is an indoor climbing experience offering fun for thrill-seekers of all ages, from pre-school to pensioners.

Each location, like Broadway Plaza, has a fun climbing arena, and a café serving coffee and fresh food. There are also indoor soft play areas, although these are currently closed due to government guidelines.

Other venues range from Hull to Sheffield, and from Northampton to Watford. For more details, visit www.rock-up.co.uk.
