A GRIMETHORPE teen is hoping her modelling career will kick-off next year as she takes part in the Miss Teen Great Britain competition.

Shaunha Wombwell, 18, of High Street, made it to the grand final of the competition earlier this month after her original application was successful.

She’s now trying to raise as much money for charity ‘Together For Short Lives’ which supports children and young people in the UK with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

The winner of Miss Teen Great Britain 2022 will receive a prize package which includes £1,000.

Shaunha said: “I’m wanting to get into modelling and so I applied for this and found out I made it through to the grand final.

“It’s a beauty pageant and I’ve now got to raise as much sponsorship money as possible.

“I’m just really excited for it all.”
