Bubbly 18-month-old Lacey-Jane Fennelly has laughed off the opposition to take the coveted crown of being Doncaster’s cutest kid.
The toddler who lives in Fishlake was a sure fire cert to scoop the title with her beaming smile and beautiful fair hair. But for mum Jayne Harrington it was still quite a shock, and it is still sinking in, she said: “She’s the baby of the family, she has three older brothers and sisters aged 18, 14 and 13, and she is spoilt by them all.
“It’s the first time I’ve entered her in something like this but I thought I would because she has got quite a bubbly personality and is really funny.
“The whole family is over the moon and think it’s wonderful.”
In August we launched our 2014 competition when we held our photographic sessions at Matalan in the Wheatley Hall Retail Centre which saw children from newborns to five-year-olds being snapped.
Then we gave you the chance to vote for your favourite child in our heats before whittling down our entries to crown our winner.
All photographs for the competition were taken by photographic company Starlight Studios.
Our heats started in September and over a three week period we ran all of the children’s photographs.
The children with the most votes were then placed into our top 20 and finally our top 10.
Lacey-Jane’s prize is a £40 voucher courtesy of Frankie & Benny’s, a 20x16 canvas from Starlight Studios and finally a gift from Tomy’s nursery and toys collection.
