When ladies enter the Miss England Contest, we encourage all contestants to raise funds & awareness for Beauty with a Purpose, the Miss World charity, founded by Miss World Chairwoman & CEO, Julia Morley.

A fundraising contest is often held at regional heats, sometimes involving local charities. Using the Beauty with a Purpose slogan, a top fundraiser is recognised at her heat for her dedication to charity work & named ‘Miss Charity’.

In the national final of Miss England, the contestants are given the task of raising funds and awareness once again. The top fundraiser is then named ‘Miss Charity’ & fast tracked through to the final 20 from all 50 finalists. If ‘Miss Charity’ does not win the national ‘Miss England’ title,  she is invited along to a special fundraising presentation, highlighting the incredible work carried out by the Charity.

Over £1billion has been raised across the World by Miss World Beauty with a Purpose for disadvantaged children and youngsters which is quite remarkable. The founder of ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ Julia Morley, was awarded a Variety Humanitarian Award for her incredible work in 2016 and continues to fund amazing causes around the world every year.  Miss World becomes a Global Charity Ambassador for the cause to highlight the amazing work the charity does.

It is greatly appreciated.” 

Tim Andrews pictured with Stephanie Hill said “On behalf of LoveBrum, we’d like to say a huge thank you to the wonderful team at Miss England and Beauty with a Purpose Foundation for providing the additional platform to support our projects that may not otherwise have received LoveBrum funding in 2017.  Each donation will go such a long way to supporting children in the Birmingham area.”
