A carnival queen is appealing for a truck for use as a float for her and her retinue.
Twelve-year-old Kia Young is currently the Leek & Moorlands Carnival Queen and is appealing for local businesses to loan her a truck to be decorated for use on carnival days.
Kia's mum Sharon explained: "We did have use of a truck from a local business.
"However, their insurance no longer allows them to use their truck for such events.
"We need a truck for events on June 21, July 12 and our own carnival day on July 19.
"We ideally would like use of the truck free-of-charge as we are a fund-raising group ourselves.
"However, if we need to pay for diesel then we don't mind doing that.
"We would need the truck, of the flat-bed kind, each morning of each of the events until around 4pm the same day."
Anyone who thinks they may be able to help Kia out can call Sharon on 07516 689962 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
