A fundraising model from Wharfedale is seeking votes – and sponsorship – from the public.

Seventeen-year-old Holly Hawke, from Otley, is a finalist in the current Miss West Yorkshire beauty pageant competition.

And on Thursday, March 27, she took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge to raise money for Beauty with a Purpose – a charity that helps sick and disadvantaged children worldwide.

Holly’s challenge can be supported at two Otley pubs, The Junction Inn and the North Bar, which have sponsor sheets.

Votes for her in the Miss West Yorkshire contest can be cast by texting Miss WY11 to 64343 or 'liking' her photo at facebook.com/misswestyorks2014/photos.
