She wins Mini.
A Honiton student has won a brand new Mini.
Lauren Lemmer, who is studying marketing at Plymouth University, completed the national Mini Mission competition early this month and came out top on the leaderboard against 13 other students from across the country.
The challenge captured the imaginations of people in Honiton who helped the 21-year-old with test drives and Mini Mission challenges, which she received points for.
She won help along the way from Honiton Twirlstars who took on the challenge of how many Twirlstars you can fit in a Mini - the answer is 18.
