11 year old schoolboy set to climb England’s highest peak for charity

This weekend, Cameron Haverly, an 11 year schoolboy from Waterloo, will climb Scafell Pike in the Lake District to raise money to help disadvantaged communities in Sierra Leone . Cameron organised the climb to support The Waterloo Partnership – a scheme linking Waterloo in Merseyside and Waterloo in Sierra Leone.

At 3,209 feet high, Scafell Pike is the highest peak in England. Having come from a family of keen hill walkers, Cameron is relishing the challenge. He will climb the peak along side his father, Dan.

Cameron said: “After hearing all about what happened in Haiti I decided I wanted to raise money for charity. Then I came up with the idea of climbing a mountain because I really like to hill walk. I’ve always wanted to climb Scafell Pike and I can’t wait to get up there! I am very excited. I will be climbing with my dad and we have got all our equipment sorted. We have raised over £200 already and I have even sponsored myself!”
