THIS year’s Miss Regatta is appealing for successors to her title to spend the year helping to change someone’s life.

Chelsie Jennison who was crowned Miss Regatta in August will be jumping out of a plane later this year to help raise funds for Martin House, a hospice for children with life limiting illness.

And she hopes that future holders of the crown will also use their year productively.

Chelsie of Drake Close will take part in a tandem skydive at an airbase near Bridlington in May and has roped in a group of friends to also raise cash.

She said: “I always wanted to do something for charity and when I thought about it a bit more there are a lot more things closer to home.

“I am doing it to raise awareness of muscular dystrophy, people don’t appreciate how lucky they are and I did not want to be Miss Regatta for this year and not to anything.”
