For my Miss England fund raising, I'd planned a lavish ball at Villa Park, luxury four course meal, live bands booked, a Mauritian guest speaker; it all came together brilliantly in such a small space of time.. except for one crucial thing; ticket sales. Due to the short notice it was just too hard to properly advertise my ball so regretabley I had to make the decision to cancel- or postpone I rather hope, to later in the year so I could ensure enough profit to make it viable for the charity.
So that left me rather stumped for my fundraising as I had high hopes for thousands from my ball! Luckily, I managed to arrange a super last minute bakesale at a local company, NES in wolverhampton. Everyone there was so amazingly charitable and helpful, I managed to raise a last minute £500 from the event! I'm so grateful to everyone there and you can see full details of the event on its dedicated page under events.
I have wound up with a grand total of £800 to donate to Beauty with a Purpose at Miss England. I'm very proud to have achieved that in a short frame of time and having had the disappointment and set back of one event falling through.
