A huge thank you to Scott and Brett Bernard for raising £15,488 by climbing Kilimanjaro.
Five friends from around the Black Country trekked six vertical kilometers across seven days as they scaled Africa’s highest mountain to raise money for three charities: Promise Dreams, The Way Youth Zone and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Scott, Brett and the other climbers battled through subzero temperatures to reach the top.
Over the weekend, 80s pop legend Katrina of Katrina and the Waves, Sonia and more celebrated this amazing achievement at Wolverhampton Racecourse. The annual gala raising money for Promise Dreams, this year called Après Ski, took place on Friday with charity patrons and Wolverhampton Wanderers footballers Steve Bull and Don Goodman.
“The Way Youth Zone is a local charity which opened in January 2016 and is a charity I am extremely passionate about. Having recently become a Father myself, I am more aware than ever of the benefits and positive impact The Way Youth Zone will have on the youth of Wolverhampton. The Way will be providing them with not only a place to learn and grow, but where they can feel supported, secure and safe.”
