Local Guinness World Record
When Vernon Kruger first set the Guinness World Record for longest time spent in a barrel in 1997, he was not only doing it to set a record. Vernon also set out to raise awareness and funds for the Johannesburg Children’s Home. When he came down after 67 days, R20 000 had been raised. This time is no different, Vernon will be raising funds for the Belfast Children’s Home and the Epilepsy South Africa centre in Dullstroom. On the 14th of November Vernon will return to Dullstroom, Mpumalanga and attempt to break the record he set 22 years ago.
