A junior beauty queen has been thanked for her generosity after collecting and donating a hoard of toiletries and food to Preston’s Foxton Centre for homeless people.
Elli Westwood, who was this year crowned Junior Miss Preston, recently began volunteering for a youth group based at the centre.
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.”
