Scott and Brett Bernard are 3,900 meters up Kilimanjaro raising money for The Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton. Five friends from around the Black Country are trekking six vertical kilometers across seven days as they scale Africa's highest mountain to raise money for the three charities: Promised Dreams, The Way Youth Zone and Birmingham Children's Hospital.  Scott Bernard sent this message from the side of the mountain, he said:  “Last night we slept 3900 meters up at Baruca camp after a walk through heavy snow trying to acclimatise. We’re all okay! We’re climbing to the top tomorrow - 9 hours in total!” Scott and Brett are brilliant supporters of The Way Youth Zone. Brett Bernard said: “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.” 

Cheryl Garvey, CEO of The Way Youth Zone, said: “All the young people, volunteers and staff at The Way Youth Zone are behind Scott and Brett. We wish them the best of luck for their final push to the top.”
