Animal lover takes the plunge
A TEENAGER is on a mission to protect the planet for future generations.
Kaitlyn Weir, 16, will take on a sponsored skydive for WWF – the World Wide Fund for Nature – to raise cash and awareness of the planet’s plight.
The former Tytherington School pupil is about to embark on a course studying animal management at Reaseheath College and her ultimate dream is to become a zoologist.
Kaitlyn, who lives with her dad Simon and sister Amelia on Hope Street West in Macclesfield, will take on a tandem skydive from Lancaster on November 21.
She said: “I have always wanted to do a skydive so I decided to combine that with some fundraising for a cause I really believe in.
“I am scared, but really excited as well.”
Kaitlyn who volunteers at Oxfam in Macclesfield, chose to support WWF because of its work on conservation projects, tackling global climate change and protecting endangered wildlife.
She developed her love of animals on childhood holidays.
