An­i­mal lover takes the plunge

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
