A HARTOFT girl has won a place in the national final of Little Miss Teen Great Britain.

Ethne Pearman, 12, now has the opportunity to compete for the crown at the final.

The charity of choice this year is “Together for Short Lives” which helps children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.

She has started raising money by helping out at a local horse show, has a charity auction lined up at Maison Du Vin, and at the time of writing has already raised £950.

Her sister Charlotte said: “Ethne is excited to be part of this competition with the opportunity to meet new people, represent her area and raise money for an amazing charity.

“Everyone in her family is so proud of her initiative in signing herself up. We are all very excited to see how she does.”

The final will be held in October 2019 at The Globe in Blackpool.
