FORMER Peele Community College pupil Jessica Hallifax had a helping hand to take part in the Spalding Flower Queen competition.

Her great-grandmother, Mary Edwards, filled in the form and posted it to us – and it was a big surprise to Jessica when we rang for a few details about her entry.

Jessica, of Jekil’s Bank, Holbeach St Johns, is studying a nursing and paramedic academy at college in King’s Lynn and hopes one day to train as a midwife.

Jessica, who is 17 in March, was a silver sports ambassador and house captain for her school and has raised a lot of money for good causes through a variety of events.

She said: “I did the Race for Life and raised over £200 by myself.” Her interests include playing piano and reading poetry.
