I have some amazing support in the form of 'Lean Body' which consists of Personal Trainer, Jade Skillen and Nutritionist, Sally Fulcher... together we put on a charity boot camp to raise money for Beauty with a Purpose. Amazing food and a great work out! Thanks to all those who supported!

Miss Cambridgeshire Finalist's Calendar

Miss Cambridgeshire Finalist's Charity Calender
 
After making such great friends in the competition I thought it would be great for us to do something together! I organised a photo shoot where we could all get together and have a giggle! Not all of the finalists could make it but the girls who could were fab! and really helped to sell them all to raise funds for Beauty With A Purpose!

Family Fun Day!

Charity Family Fun Day 2012
 
Okay, so you're thinking... who in the right mind would dress up as bob the builder for fun? well, that would be me! I hosted a fun day with a raffle, cake stalls, childrens games, family games, food, dancing and lots of sillyness!

Running for Beauty with a Purpose

Charity Fun Run 2012!
 
To raise money for the Beauty With A Purpose Foundation I organised a charity run. I created sponsorship forms which detailed all of the information. We all worked hard to collect sponsers and then set off for our 5K! I am so pleased to have such amazing support from my family and friends as this would not have been possible without them!



The Crowning Moment...

Miss Cambridgeshire Final Night - October 2013
 
On 20 October 2013 The Highfield Event Group hosted a lavish evening of food, drink, celebrity and the Miss Cambridgeshire Final.  The winner of the competition would be crowned by Mark Wright as Miss Cambridgeshire, win a host of prizes and gain entry into the famous Miss England Competition - leading to Miss World 2013.
 
I was interviewed and talked about how I raised £1400 for the Beauty With A Purpose Foundation by putting on various charity events, my interests and how I enjoyed the fitness bootcamp round in particular. 
 
I loved my time on the catwalk, smiling at the glam audience and twirling in my heels, I really made the most of it... but I never once thought I could win knowing how amazing and stunning the other girls were...
 
All of the finalists came on stage for one final time and I was so happy having had an amazing evening and met such lovely girls who I now called my friends. The moment came when Mark Wright announced the winner and to my shock he said my name! It was all quite a bit of a blur after that, but It was an absolutely incredible feeling! I suddenly thought... I am going to Miss England!!!
