Firstly I would like to say an enormous thank you to Kiss Me Kate for your incredible dress you have supplied me with for the Miss England final. It is truly beautiful, and I am honoured to wear it.
On 28th July I held a charity gig at the Golden Cross in Redditch in aid of Beauty with a Purpose. With local acts playing such as Detective, it went down a storm! We raised a total of £341.00 and I am so grateful to all of my wonderful family and friends who attended.
In addition to this, for the last two months I have been selling tickets for my ongoing raffle, also in aid of Beauty with a Purpose. Pampered Pets in Redditch have kindly agreed for me to attend their salon four times per week for three hours at a time to sell raffle tickets to their customers. I have asked local businesses if they would like to donate prizes and so far have had some wonderful prizes donated: restaurant vouchers, garden furniture, cash prizes, four free dog haircuts and lots more! I am so thankful! £321.00 has so far been raised and I am hoping to up that total for the big final!
Earlier this month I was given the once in a lifetime opportunity to feature in an aired documentary following the journey to Miss England of myself and three other finalists! I began filming on the 7th August and so far have filmed some great shots expressing the hard work us finalists do for Beauty with a Purpose, and also a bit about my lifestyle too including jumping my horses! I am looking forward to continuing filming the final shots at the big final and on the 29th August whereby I'll be hosting the Midlands forces ball, as Miss Birmingham 2015/16.
So currently I am sat on airport standby for another six hours as I have just missed a flight to Nice due to..once again..traffic on the M25! Just my luck! However I have a nice trip ahead of me to Barbados on Monday 10th August, arriving back home the morning before the final, so what a hectic week this will be, also departing the morning after the final back to Barbados!
I look forward to updating you the night before the final!
All my love
