Georgina, 17, picked for gala queen

Georgina Thornton has been selected as this year’s Brighouse Gala Queen.

The 17-year-old of Rastrick was last year’s attendant and came back to the auditions because she had had so much fun at the last Brighouse Charity Gala.

“I really enjoyed it last year and thought I would go back again,” she said. “I went over what I said last year and because the panel already knew me they didn’t need to ask me as many questions.”

Georgina’s attendant will be Crystal Wheelhouse-Brown who lives in Brighouse.

Brighouse Charity Gala will take place on Saturday, June 29, at Wellholme Park.
