A WOMAN who admits she is more likely to be found wearing steel toe-capped boots than singing on stage has recorded a charity single.

Construction sales worker Teresa Hind, 27, beat entrants from around the UK to win the RAF Factor song contest.

Teresa, who was born in Stamford and lives near Newborough, was picked by a panel of judges over nine other contestants in the grand final at RAF Cranwell on September 3.

She won the chance to record her own single, which will raise money for three forces charities.

Teresa said: “I’m very excited. I got to write my own song which I loved doing.”

The competition was open to RAF and Ministry of Defence personnel and their dependants. Teresa was entered by her husband Darren, who works as a police dog handler at RAF Wittering.

She has been singing her whole life, but admits her career is a higher priority.

She added: “You are more likely to find me wearing my steel toe-cap boots than on stage.”

Teresa’s song has been recorded and is currently being engineered.

The single should be released before Christmas and proceeds will be shared between the RAF Association, the RAF Benevolent Fund and the British Limbless Ex-Service Mens Association.

Teresa added: “I tried to write it so everyone can relate to it. It’s about winning the fight, but a mind over matter fight.

“I’m really proud to be able to give something back.”

The single will be released on the major online download websites.
