Jodie Whitehead from Manthorpe who is vying to be crowned Miss East Midlands raises £300 for Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group
A pastry chef at an elite London hotel vying to be crowned Miss East Midlands, has raised £300 for a children’s cancer charity through a car boot sale.
Jodie Whitehead, 19, from Manthorpe, and a pastry chef at The Ritz in London, organised the sale at Essendine Village Hall on Saturday (May 11), in aid of Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group.
Alison, Jodie’s mum, said: “It was a good day and the weather was also nice.
“We had nine cars, we had a tombola and we had food on offer as well.
“We’ve raised just over £300 which is good for a little car boot in the village.
“We’d just like to thank everybody for their kind donations and also Adele for allowing us to use Essendine Village Hall.”
Jodie, a former New College Stamford student, is vying to be crowned Miss East Midlands in a ceremony at Leicester Tiger’s Welford Road Stadium on May 31 and the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group is the designated charity.
Jodie is aiming to raise £1,000 for the charity.
The winners will go through to the Miss England finals.
