Beauty pageant winner Katherine Harris takes on charity challenges

A beauty pageant winner is hoping to raise money for two charities with a raffle and is hoping businesses will support her by donating prizes.

Katherine Harris, 22, of Masterton Road, Stamford, was thrilled to be crowned Lincolnshire’s Dazzling Beauty 2013.

She has made it to the national final of the competition, which will be held in Brighton on September 14.

As part of the competition participants are asked to raise money for charity Sodje Sports Foundation, which supports community development in deprived regions both in the UK and abroad.

Katherine is also fundraising for brain injury charity Headway.

Katherine, who runs her own beauty therapy business, is hoping businesses will support her by donating prizes for a raffle, which will be drawn on August 24.

She is also hoping to organise a fun day for the charities and would be grateful for help.

She said: “If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it, as would the two charities.”
