Fundraisers hope they have made enough money for a life changing operation for a Bristol boy after arriving at Wembley following a 5 day walk.
The group set off from Bristol on Wednesday. They're raising money for six year old Oskar Pycroft who suffers from cerebral palsy. Bristol City have been helping the family of Oskar raise £50,000 for his operation.
Oskar will be leading Bristol City out ahead of their big game today.
"It was horrific in parts, elated in parts. It was really good but really difficult at the same time.
Fundraising has gone well. We think we're at the £9,000 mark but we won't get a definite figure until the final count up tomorrow.
We are very very close to the total amount for the operation."
"The weather has been great, the group's been great and we've had a lot of fun, a lot of pain, but we've got through it and we've made it so yeah it's all worthwhile."
