CHESHIRE beauty queen Catriona Cameron is showing her support for a struggling eyesight charity by stepping out in a pair of ‘wacky’ wellies.

Miss Cheshire, the charity’s patron, is appealing for people to join her in their Wellington boots for a walk around Chester Racecourse on Sunday November 15, to help raise funds for the recession-struck charity Vision Support.

Catriona, who suffers from the rare sight condition Irlen syndrome, said the charity had been hit hard by the economic downturn.

She said: “Vision Support is a fantastic charity that offers help and advice to people coping with a visual difficulty but due to the current economic situation they are really lacking the funds needed to continue their invaluable service.

“I want to encourage everyone to get involved in this fantastic event and help save Vision Support.”

Catriona, 22, of Norton Village, has joined forces with Jane Arends, the charity’s funding officer, who has organised the Wacky Welly Walk around the racecourse as part of a fundraising day.

Jane said: “We’re looking for as many people as possible to sign up for the walk.

“You can just come along on the day, take part in the walk or do the walk in a pair of wacky wellies with a prize for the wackiest design.”

The day will also mark Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire William Bromley-Davenport’s retirement as Vision Support’s president.

The event is to be held from noon-4pm.
