The teenager has been inspired to volunteer her spare time to local community causes after a busy year of fundraising.

She will now be working with the youth group on a weekly basis, she said: “The kids were all great and so full of happiness, love and fun.

“Any activity to be done they did with such enthusiasm and I love it

“Although this is not directly to do with the heats (pageants) I do I am still buzzing to be helping out here

“I am so happy that all my work over the passed year has paid off and that I can now finally help out with such a great cause.”
