Kayleigh tests her nerves on the Meldon Viaduct

Kayleigh Sweetland will be leaping off the 100ft high Meldon Viaduct for CLIC Sargent’s free-fall abseil, the Dartmoor Drop on September 6 to help support children and young people with cancer.

Kayleigh, along with her sister Layla, will be taking part in the daring challenge to raise funds in support of their brother Toby who was diagnosed with cancer in March at the age of nine.

Kayleigh said: “I have signed up to take part in the Dartmoor Drop because of the support CLIC Sargent has given our whole family. From being able to stay for free at CLIC House in Bristol, to providing support for the whole family."

Thanks to their support Toby is happy and able to continue to live a normal life, to keep up with his education, and play with friends.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell said: “Kayleigh has already raised over £400 for CLIC Sargent. I am overwhelmed with the generosity of their whole family, friends and community who are working so hard to raise funds in support of Toby."
