A VILLAGE queen has handed over funds to charity. Retiring Longsdon Rose Queen, Emily Pointon, handed over a cheque for £1,805 to Liz Carpenter, a representative of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust. In addition, Emily has also sent a cheque for £200 to Midlands Air Ambulance.
The funds were raised throughout Emily's regal year from various functions arranged by herself and event organisers. She said: "We would like to thank all who were involved and the sponsors for their generous donations.”
