Would a love of animals make you do this?

A LOVE OF ANIMALS has led to one intrepid Rothes resident taking the brave decision to leap from 10,000ft this summer – and raise 10p for each foot!

Rebecca Reid will plummet from an aircraft in June – joining the birds in their own environment in her bid to raise £1000 for the Scottish SPCA.

“I care deeply about animals and felt that I really should do something to help the Scottish SPCA,” Rebecca told insideMoray this week, adding: “They do not receive any help from the government and are not lottery funded – so all they can do is rely on people like me to help out from time to time.

“There are just too many innocent animals who suffer horrifically and that breaks my heart, so I’m hoping to raise what is for me a huge target of £1000 to help out.”

Jumping from an aircraft is one of the most daring fundraising events the Scottish SPCA encourage their supporters to undertake – and ranks alongside a Titan Crane Bungee Jump as one recommended only for those with a head for heights!

In May alone the animal charity lists a Madagascar Trek, Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle, Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Titan Crane Abseil and London to Paris Cycle – along with many more ways of helping the Scottish animal population.
