Char­ity glide for pets at 90

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

A BRAVE pen­sioner went paraglid­ing on her 90th birth­day to raise cash for her favourite pet char­ity.

Con­nie Smith had opted to go wing walking to help the Peo­ple’s Dis­pen­sary for Sick An­i­mals, but was over the 75-year-old age limit.

After tak­ing to the skies above south­ern Spain, she said: “Ev­ery­one thought I was mad, but it was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Con­nie, of Gran­tham, Lincs, started sup­port­ing PDSA at the age of seven. Her ap­peal is at Just­giv­ing.
