A TEENAGER will put on her walking boots as she embarks on an eight-mile trek to raise funds for charity.

Tora Niewolik, who suffers with asthma will be doing the walk from the old surgery based in Byfield to Danetre school where she is a pupil, to raise funds for the RSPCA.

The inspiration for the walk, which takes place on Saturday, June 4, came out of a lesson at school.

The 12-year-old, who lives on The Stour on the Grange estate, said: “We were doing a lesson on Citizenship and how we should do things to help make a difference to other people.

“The idea then came to me to do something for charity and I thought it would be a good idea to do this.”

She chose to raise funds for the RSPCA.

Tora said: “I really love animals and it is a charity which does a lot of really good work.

“I currently have a dog called Charlie, a King Charles Cavalier who is a rescue dog and some stick insects but I love all kinds of different animals.”

She is collecting sponsorship and hopes to raise about £100 by doing through her efforts.

Her father Ray said: “I think she is a little star.

“She is always willing to do something like this and is always very interested in helping out and supporting animals.”
