Park Community School student bids for beauty pageant glory

A BARNSTAPLE teenager is hoping to make it through to the finals of the Teen Princess UK competition.

Jessica Doldersum, 14, was spotted by model scouts during a recent school trip to the Birmingham Fashion Show and asked to audition for this year’s beauty pageant.

The Park Community School student attended a professional photo shoot in London and has been selected for the voting stage of the 2011 competition for 13-15-year-old girls.

Now she is hoping that Gazette readers will register their support for her before voting closes at 11.30pm on Thursday, March 31. The top two girls will go through to the finals in London on September 2.

Mum Lisa Crome said: “Jessica needs as much support as she can generate to boost her votes and we would really appreciate the support of Barnstaple and surrounding areas if possible.

“Jessica is a fun, lovely girl with a fantastic sense of humour. She has a good heart and really cares about other people and wants to become a teacher when she grows up.”

To vote for Jessica, text TP 22 to 81319 or telephone 0900 593 2000 and quote number 22. Texts cost 75p plus the standard network rate and calls cost 75p although calls from a mobile may vary.
