A TEENAGER from Newtown is taking part in Britain’s Junior Miss final in Bolton next month.

Summer Leigh Morris, 14, is hoping that her hard work, fundraising and volunteering at a charity shop, as well as a sponsored walk up Snowdon this weekend will help her wow the judges at the finals which take place at Bolton’s Albert Hall on August 18.

Proud mum Tracey Morris said: “This is about inner beauty and taking part in Junior Miss is supposed to help all the contestants raise their self-esteem by working for their community.

“Summer needs to raise £200 as Variety, The Children’s Charity, receives donations from Junior Miss.

“To do this Summer has organised a count the sweets in the jar competition at the Glanhafren Cafe and is doing a sponsored walk up Snowdon on Sunday, July 15, as well as holding a cake stall.

“She’s also been working in a charity shop in her spare time.

“For the pageant she’ll have to make a dress out of recycled products.”

Tracey added: “And we’re thankful to Jo’s Hairworks for sponsoring her.

“It’s a really good way of giving kids a boost.”

Britain’s Junior Miss is the nationwide search for 13 to 17-year-olds to represent their area and organisers are expecting 80 regional Junior Miss contestants to attend the final next month.
