Ollie Phillips international rugby star

Cox Automotive has signed up to support former rugby international Ollie Phillips in his bid to break two Guinness World Records on Mount Everest.

Phillips kicked off the partnership by joining Cox Automotive team members at their annual awards dinner on 17 January, and will speak at several other Cox Automotive events during 2019.

The LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge will see Phillips join fellow rugby internationals in support of Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby. As well as climbing the world’s highest mountain, the team will also attempt to play the highest game of full contact rugby, and the highest game of touch rugby in history.

Phillips said: “I am an ambassador for Wooden Spoon and was a team captain for the Arctic rugby challenge and a long term supporter of the charity. I am all about big statements, creating amazing memories to associate with Wooden Spoon.”

“I am delighted to be working with Cox Automotive, who are supporting me in this challenge and enabling Wooden Spoon to make global history.”

Cox Automotive has supported Wooden Spoon for the last two years, raising more than £75,000 to support disadvantaged and disabled children across the UK.
