Donation gives Dom’s big dream wings

A SCARBOROUGH cadet is set to soar on an Asian adventure after a cash boost from a local fund.

Dominic MacAleese has been given £150 from the Richard Fox Memorial Fund to help make a Yorkshire Cadet Trust Tri Service expedition to Nepal in July a reality.

The 15-year-old Scalby School student is a member of the Scarborough Air Training Corp and hopes to climb the 5,545 metre high mountain Kala Patthar.

He also plans to spend four weeks trekking in the Himalayas.

The £150 donation will be put towards his funding target of £1,200 which will pay for flights, accommodation and other costs.
