STONEACRE Motor Group Middlesbrough has presented Miss England with a new Suzuki Swift to use during her reign.
Alisha Cowie, a 19-year-old forensic science student from Newcastle upon Tyne, will be driving the supermini to arrive at assignments.
A spokesperson for Stoneacre said: ‘We are delighted to be partnering with Alisha Cowie and the Miss England campaign. With Alisha being such a great patron of the north-east and also an enthusiastic student at Teesside University, this only helps strengthen the unity between the two parties.
‘In addition, Alisha’s dedication to her charity work with Beauty With A Purpose is admirable to say the least, and we’re proud to help her out by supplying her with one of our most popular cars.’
Alisha, who will be returning to university in September and hopes to be a police officer, won Miss Newcastle 2017 and represented the city at the Miss England final in September, going on to the Miss World contest in China last month. She said: ‘My reign as Miss England so far has been incredible and now that Stoneacre would like to sponsor me with a new car is the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel!’
Stoneacre Motor Group is a family-run dealer group that has more than 40 showrooms across England and Wales.
