Langdon Hills racer gearing up for first full season
Rising star racing driver, and local girl, Emily Linscott, confirmed this week that she has signed a deal with local business, Porch Honey, to be the face of their ‘BeeMetics’ range of Skin Care products.
Porch Honey, based in Chafford Hundred, have their Apiaries located in some of the regions stunning Country Parks and their beautiful natural meadows, where the Porch bees do their nectar collections.
Porch Honey Director, Kim Burnham said: “I realised a huge synergy with Emily and her parents’ story, with our own, and felt that we needed work together in a way that supports us all. My son, Sam, has entered the business world through hard work and endeavour, to be the best he and Porch Honey can be.
“The same goes for Emily; she put’s in a huge amount of work behind the scenes to realise her dream, and, like us, her parents are supportive of her every move; be it time, financial or moral support, it’s a team effort, and one that has paid dividends to the two youngsters’ lives thus far.”
Emily and her parents were invited to a ‘Bee Experience’ with Porch Honey last year, where they got the chance to get up close and personal with the bees and the hive’s when they helped in re-homing some ‘homeless’ bees whose hive had been vandalised.
Emily’s mum, Samantha, said: “It was a great experience for us all. We were a little nervous at first but Sam and Kim both helped us through our early fears and the bees were fantastic too.
“We love what Porch Honey are doing and really appreciate the hard work they’re doing to change the way bee farming is done, looking after the local eco-system by working closely with local Ranger’s to ensure the very best environment for the bees.”
Emily said: “Part of my role with Porch Honey will be helping Kim and Sam to harvest the Bee Venom and the Propolis, two vital components of the products I’ll be promoting. Once these have been successfully collected, I’ll also be helping to make the products too.
“I’m really excited to start work. I mean, how many people can say they even know about this sort of thing, let alone get the chance to be part of its creation?”
The 15-year-old from Langdon Hills will be embarking on her first full season of car competition after taking part in the final three rounds of the 2017 Ginetta
Junior season. Her first race will be at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on April 7 and 8, supporting the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC); it will be broadcast live on ITV4.
