After meeting the team from Stratstone Tyneside BMW at the Chronicle Champions Awards, Harriotte Lane, the current Miss Teen Tyne & Wear Galaxy who was nominated for Young Role Model of the year 2nd year running asked for us to get involved with one of her fundraising adventures.
The North Tyneside based teen has already raised over £32,000 for charity and is currently focused on fundraising for The Christie, The UK's largest providing of research and cancer treatment services outside the NHS.
Harriotte's fundraising plan included recruiting a team to conquer the worlds’ fastest, longest and highest zip wire, the Velocity Zip Wire in North Wales, travelling at over 110mph for 1 mile, 500feet above water!
The team heading to Wales on the 5th of March include Jazmine Nichol - Miss Teen Newcastle, Imogen Mitchell - Miss Northumberland and Ross Dixon who plays for the Whitley Bay Warriors and Team GB ball hockey.
So far the team have raised almost £1000 in sponsorship and will be driving to Wales in sporty, athletic style courtesy of a BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch from Stratstone Tyneside
The team at Stratstone Tyneside wish Harriotte and team all the very best.
