Name: Christine Earles. Where do you live?: Whirley in Macclesfield. Bio: I am the chairlady of Windyway Trust. I am a full-time teacher of computer science at an Independent school in Manchester. I am the Duke of Edinburgh Award Manager at my school. I have two sons, two daughters-in-law, one beautiful granddaughter and two dogs (both rescues from Windyway). I started helping Windyway to raise funds in 2001 when I adopted a rescue Collie named Liddy. I usually do all manner of things for my charity, drive the van, sort the donations, do lots of administration, help at the events and adopt dogs! What inspired you to start doing this?: I was impressed and humbled by the work Windyway do and their devotion to animals. What do you enjoy most about doing this?: It’s like a hobby that gets under your skin, once you start it’s difficult to stop and very addictive. The volunteers and supporters are so supportive of our rescue work and fundraising, it’s difficult to turn your back on such loyalty. What are your greatest achievement/s?: Personally, achieving my Masters’ Degree at 50, charitably, I would say setting up the Windyway Trust Charity with some wonderful people. Any plans for the future?: Personally, to travel around Britain in a motor-home to the places I have never seen. Charitably, to build on a future for the charity to continue helping rescue animals. Where is your favourite place in Macclesfield?: Windyway of course. Ideally how would you spend every day?: Probably walking my dogs, reading and gardening.
