Local Miss Junior Teen GB participant raises funds for children’s charity


A teenager from Wanstead is raising funds for Together for Short Lives, a children’s palliative care charity.

Layla Badowska, who recently turned 13, has long been involved in charity work in Redbridge and Newham, where she also trains in a professional cheerleading team.

Her latest fundraising efforts are linked to her participation in the Miss Junior Teen GB 2020 competition.

When we all come together as one, we can make a real difference to children so badly affected by a terminal illness,” said Layla.
