A YOUTH worker in Kidderminster will take to the skies today for an exhilarating wing walk challenge to raise money for the charity she works for.

Cat Bennett will stand on top of a Boeing Stearman biplane where she will be put through a series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks, all in support of Kidderminster District Youth Trust (KDYT).

Having worked at KDYT for 11 years, 34-year-old Cat is hoping to raise £2,000 towards a weekend trip for local youngsters.

Cat said: "I like to do one big event a year to raise money for KDYT. Last year we did a fire walk and the year before it was a skydive.

"This year I wanted to raise a chunk of money towards a residential with the kids. £2,000 would mean we could take a mini bus of young people away for the weekend.

"If I can raise the money, it would then be up to our young people to plan it. Everything at KDYT is young people led."

Cheering Cat on during her wing walk this afternoon will be a group of KDYT youngsters and fellow staff, who are taking a mini bus down to Cirencester to show their support.
