Help Honiton student Lauren Lemmer complete her mission to win a Mini.

A Honiton student is on a mission and needs the community’s help to complete her national challenge.

Lauren Lemmer, who is currently studying marketing at Plymouth University, is one of 14 students taking part in the Mini Mission competition to win one of the cars.

As part the challenge she has to get as many people as possible to come on a drive or Mini mission with her and gets awarded points, which are added to a league table.

She said: “The Mini missions involve participants taking it in turns to drive the Mini and performing fun tasks.”

The missions so far have included squeezing as many people as possible into a phone booth, taking a picture of the car with an animal and getting members of the public to join in a dance routine.

She has been completing missions in Plymouth since she received the car in November, but is now hoping to get people in Honiton involved in all the fun.

The 21-year-old is representing Plymouth University, which is the only one from Devon to be taking part against other universities from across the country.

Lauren added: “If you have always wanted to drive a Mini or want to drive one just for fun then contact me and we can go for a drive.”

Those who cannot drive are still able to go out for a drive with her.

“I just need people in Honiton willing to do it,” says the 21-year-old. “I am really enjoying it. I would just love to win this.”

People can show their support by liking her Facebook page - for every ‘like’ she receives she is awarded one point and 10 points are awarded for every person that drives the car.

The winner will be able to keep their car for a year and Mini will also throw a party for their university.

Anyone interested in helping Lauren is urged to email or visit the Mini Mission Plymouth Facebook page. She has until January 27 to complete her mission.
