GET TO KNOW THE NEW MISS ENGLAND REHEMA MUTHAMI IN A SPECIAL Q & A on the MISS ENGLAND APP OUT NOW ! 

Q1. What made you enter Miss England?

“Miss England is my first ever pageant I have entered, so this is still very much a new space to be in! As a young girl the glitz and glam of beauty pageants fascinated me, but I’d never had the opportunity to enter the pageant space.

As an adult I began to start following the pageant space more and learning the sentiment of Miss World and the focus on philanthropy through Beauty With A Purpose. This peaked my interest as someone that believes in giving back and helping those that are less fortunate. So whilst going through a period of trying to “find myself” and also step out of my comfort zone, I thought that entering a pageant leading to Miss World would be the perfect thing to do.

So I applied to the Miss England contest with the aim of not only building myself, but also with the mission to use my personal experiences to help others and make a difference.”

Rehema was crowned Miss England 2021 on Friday 27th August 2021

Poppy said

“My Eco dress has been created in collaboration with the wonderful @doesliverpool @jackiesees @kassimaker

It was great to teach a Primary School Year 4 class who helped me with the sewing of my dress whilst learning about our planet and the Maths behind the dress design.

 

My dress has a geometric Maths theme (due to my love for the subject), and is completely made out of recycled plastic CHOCOLATE BOXES collected from the festive season and laser cut into shapes @qualitystreetuki @cadburyuk
The wings, which light up and have a Heroes Chocolate box edging, symbolise what we are trying to protect by living environmentally friendly – NATURE

3rd place

Miss North West Charity Queen

Eleanor Farr raising £2,675

Eleanor said ” I raised the money the same way I raised the £10,000 during the Miss Cheshire heats.

During lockdown, I worked incredibly hard creating an online charity shop called Eleanor’s Box. I went around my local villages collecting donations to sell for charity online and literally worked every day photographing the items to sell, building an online presence, packaging sold items and posting them. My charity shop slowed down a bit once lockdown lifted as I guess people weren’t online shopping quite as much.

So I held a cash raffle for BWAP and We Do Ethical which raised £180 to be split between the two charities.”

4th place Miss Tameside Alexandra Taylor raised £2570

Alex said “I have raised £2570 for Beauty With A Purpose charity. To raise the money I did a sponsored 30 mile bike ride, in hail and snow, with active rheumatoid arthritis, using a disabled friendly bike. This was the first time I had been on a bike in 10 years since my diagnosis.

I have also done weekly fancy dress Tours of Tameside, where I travelled round the 9 districts, rain or shine, in fancy dress with my charity bucket.

I have done charity football matches and car washes.

I have also done a lot of promotional deals with local businesses, offering them promotion in exchange for charity donations. I have done weekly raffles and live auctions, in collaboration with different companies, who have kindly donated prizes each week.

I have also been working in collaboration with Nationwide. They have aloud me to fundraise in store, with an independent from branch matching any donations received.

I have also raised £1400 for Women Aid with my talent round entry and £850 for One Women At A Time charity.

I also pledged 640 trees to We Do Ethical. “

5th place Miss Lewisham Constance Iloghalu raised £1,755

Constance works as a Family support worker but managed to do fundraising around her work. ..

“I raised funds through the 5K charity run that I did. Running 5K every day, I also did bake sales, and other sponsored challenges. I also received donations based on the volunteering work that I did, such as writing to elderly residents in care homes.”

6th Place Miss Cheshire Heather Gaulton £1617

“I ran charity Bootcamps every Wednesday in August where all the money raised went to BWAP.

I also ran a raffle to win group training session with myself and provided drinks and refreshments where I also spoke about Plastfree and gave everyone a package to take away to raise awareness.

I have recently set up a donation point at my gym where people can drop their old gym clothes, trainers, that they don’t use. I will be rehoming these to women and girls facing barriers to fitness. Helping women and young girls look after their physical and mental well-being whilst looking after the planet. “

7th Place Miss London Jessica Kang £1,599

“One of my fundraising projects was making these handmade scented candles and selling them for BWAP- I sold just over 40 candles!!!!”

Jessica won the Miss Asianna Award in the Miss England national final .

8th place Miss Ealing Rebecca Sinnarajah £1, 573.50

Rebecca said ” I have raised £1573.50 for Beauty With a Purpose charity. I did many bake sales, cycling/running around the park for a week to raise money. I also held a mini event where people can come and get their henna done. I’m so happy that I’m able to raise money for such a great cause.”

representing Bedfordshire and Miss All African Colours who raised £1437

Rehema said

“I did a Bungee jump with UK Bungee Club at the O2 arena location. I was completely petrified and screamed the whole way down!

It was an amazing experience though.” Rehema is the winner of Miss England 2021 !

10th place Miss Lincolnshire Rebecca Jay Fearn £1435

To raise money for the BWAP as part of the Miss England final, I held a virtual clothes sale, selling clothes I no longer needed but were too good to be thrown away.

This idea for fundraising came to me when I was moving house and thinking about what i could do with all the clothes I no longer wanted. Not only did this offer an opportunity to raise funds for beauty with a purpose it also encouraged buying second hand clothes and discouraged the use of fast fashion.

I also used my own business and entrepreneur mind set help raise money for beauty with a purpose by donating 5% of each sale to this wonderful charity.

And hosted a virtual quiz night for my friends donating 100% of ticket sales to BWAP.

11th place Miss Birmingham Bella Hakim raised £1,373

Chelsea – Lea Stokes raised £1368

Chelsea- Lea said “. I raised my funds for BWAP by holding an ladies only charity event bringing 50 women together at the pioneer in Liverpool, all local acts together and local businesses giving prices for the raffle, we raised an amazing £1078 after paying for our venue and evening dinner. It was amazing seeing local acts come together to support an amazing charity which helps disadvantaged children. I then raised £235 from fitness classes and my family members.

Myself and my sister in law also raised £1340 for sky diving from 15’000ft for Zoes places who provide respite, palliative and end of life care for babies and infants aged 0-5 years with life limiting and life threatening conditions.

Myself and my gym members raised an £406 for the Walk all over cancer campaign, we walked 10,000 steps a day, with losing my school friend to cancer on Christmas Day and family members this was very close to my heart.

With my little brother losing his best friend at 17. I wanted to support children mental health, The Josh Hemming Foundation from one fitness bootcamp we raised £394 in 45 minutes”

13th place Miss Lancashire Jessica Gagen £1360

“To raise funds for Beauty with a Purpose I took upon the challenge of running 5k everyday, rain or shine around Liverpool in fancy dress. I did this for 8 weeks solid without a day off, starting on the 1st of July and ending on the 25th of August! My outfits included a pirate, dragon, cheerleader, cave woman, dinosaur, Where’s Wally and so much more! As a result I’m now known locally by the nickname Fancy Dress Jess, and adding to the 40 days I did in spring on the run up to Miss Lancashire, I’ll have done 96 days in total! I’ve ran the majority solo, and I let my Instagram followers choose my outfit the night before by creating a vote on my story, so I’m clueless as to what I’ll be running in until I’m about to go!”

14th place Miss Middlesex Keflyn Sachar £1276

Keflyn, won the Beauty with a Pupose award in 2020 , and the Asian Face of Miss England award in Miss England 2021 said

“Discovering my life purpose to serve others selflessly during my Miss England journey, ignited a fire in me to dedicate my time to give back to my community in unlimited ways, I completed over 20 charity projects in 2020 alone! Each month of 2020, I undertook a different humanitarian project and continued to raise funds throughout 2021, which I am so grateful for.

Being a Cyberbullying Mentor, I felt the need to implement the Mental Health Check-Up, providing free mentoring sessions open to everyone, spreading positivity and hope, offering support, advice and solutions and simply listening and being there for others in times of self-isolation. I also baked Miss England themed cupcakes at the peak of the epidemic and distributed them to our NHS Heroes. To offer support to the most vulnerable in our society, I personally done grocery shopping for the elderly and shielding patients and sanitised it thoroughly before delivering it to them. On World Kindness Day, I launched Campaign Amore to offer mindfulness sessions to those whom were affected due to the lockdown restrictions. I visited many local charities, foodbanks and homeless shelters to learn what they do, work with them in the future and donate food and clothing to them.

During October half-term, I teamed-up with a local restaurant to provide free schools meals for the whole week to students of my High School and served them first-hand, donating the rest to the homeless. During the week leading up to Christmas I volunteered to prepare 40,000 meals across 4 days and on Christmas Eve, I distributed Christmas presents and hot meals to the homeless and residents of Grenfell. My philanthropic work continued into 2021, I sold 100% organic cotton T-Shirts with inspirational quotes, inspired by organisations such as: PlastFree, WASUP and We Do Ethical.

I will cherish getting through the first ever Virtual Miss England Semi-Final and becoming a Miss England Finalist and now, winning The Miss England Beauty With A Purpose 2020 award in what’s been the toughest time for so many of us!”

IN SUMMARY

Miss England Director Angie Beasley said ” This is incredible work by these inspirational Miss England finalists, a BIG THANK YOU to all for their efforts in the Beauty with a Purpose round of the competition.

Considering the year that everyone has just been through , to stay so positive and take time out to do fundraising in such difficult times is incredible , every finalist who managed to donate their time and efforts for this worthy cause should be very proud of themselves !”

Boston resident in the running for Miss England crown

2 months ago

A 21-year-old graduate and model from Boston is one step closer to being crowned the Miss England queen, after recently being named “Miss Boston”.  Mia Rothwell has also placed in the top 12 shortlist of the Bare Face Top Model round , the no make up round in the contest !  This round is taking place on the 2nd August at the Hotel Rafael in London .

 Mia  is a former student of Giles Academy and Boston High School, and has graduated in International Business and Arabic at the University of Westminster.  Mia was crowned Miss Boston in May 2021, after being named 1st runner-up in the popular Miss Lincolnshire competition which was featured on the local BBC News channel !

Mia hopes to use her title to encourage mental health awareness. 

Mia said: “The Miss England competition has been an exciting and different challenge for me, both physically and mentally. 

Following in the footsteps of the current reigning Miss England, NHS Dr Bhasha Mukherjee, it is a huge honour for me, and I’m determined to continue to ensure that Boston is recognised for it’s potential in the contest. Winning this competition would be a dream come true, and help me with my passion to improve mental health awareness, particularly in younger adults and teenagers.”

Bhasha Mukherjee became the first woman in history to be the longest crowned Miss England, will have carried the title for 2+ years, due to the postponement of the 2020 competition following the outbreak of the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

Bhasha was crowned Miss England back in 2019, and the following day, started her work as a Junior Doctor at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital . 

Phil Green, organiser of the Miss Lincolnshire competition said: “The calibre of the women who enter the Miss Lincolnshire competition on a yearly basis gets better and better, and it’s certainly becoming harder to pick a winner to represent the county for the Miss England Final. Rebecca, who was crowned earlier this year as Miss Lincolnshire excelled in her talent and interview rounds with the judges, with Mia coming a close runner up and also goes through to the Miss England competition as Miss Boston. 

“Both Mia & Rebecca have become an asset for the county and their individual towns, and I am delighted to see them continue further throughout the competition.” 

The annual Miss England competition was due to be held at the Heart of England Conference Centre in Coventry,  however due to the ongoing enforcement of restrictions by the Government due to the new Delta variant of Coronavirus, organisers decided to move the date back to August 2021.

The heats and regional finals for Miss Lincolnshire were held through social media earlier in the year, due to the lockdown restrictions resulting in the forced cancellation of in person finals. 

Most recently, Miss England finalists have participated in a new virtual round, brought in for the 2021 contest following the pandemic, named “Explore the Nation, where each contestant showcases her town, city or country in an attempt to boost local tourism.

Press release


The Nations Entry to the 70th Miss World

Finalists from across England have already reached the final stages with some regional contests having to postpone their events until as late as April 21 due to regional lockdown restrictions.

Therefore the next Miss England National date is TO BE ANNOUNCED , once everyone knows the way forward but is most likely to be held early Summer of 2021

The Finalists so far will have much longer to prepare for the ten rounds which include the Beauty with a Purpose fundraising round. “Miss England contestants around the country have already raised over £30,000 for charity and made 10,000 tree planting pledges  in 2020 which isn’t bad considering the situation “ said Angie.

Another exciting round which the finalists can prepare  for at home is the

PLASTFREE ECO QUEEN

DIVERSITY

Over the years the Miss England contest has celebrated all kinds of entertaining themes.  Never before has the contest included such DIVERSE women and fashion from many different backgrounds & communities .

“Bhasha Mukherjee has already been an exceptional Miss England & will continue with her reigh. Not only has she served her country as an NHS doctor throughout the pandemic, she has also brought a diverse feel to the contest due to her heritage which truly reflects England today” said Angie.

Bhasha said  ” Beauty With a Purpose is at the heart of the Miss England & Miss World contest. My own BWAP project will continue to focus on the prevention of Diabetes & good health. Since I won Miss England I have become an ambassador for Prolongevity & Diabetes UK promoting health education and I’m now working on a Stop Smoking Campaign for October.   I hope the Miss England Finalists can use this extra time and raise lots of funds for Beauty with a Purpose. This will make a difference to the lives of youngsters across the world”.

ISOBEL WINS MISS BLACKCOUNTRY

1 year ago

ISOBEL WINS MISS BLACK COUNTRY 

Isobel Crowned the new MISS BLACK COUNTRY 2020 during Lockdown.

ISOBEL LINES (20) a Sports Science Student from Wednesbury was crowned as Miss Black Country 2020 on June 3rd. She is the FIRST ever Miss Black Country to be virtually chosen due to the current COVID-19 outbreak.

During lockdown, Isobel continued her charity and community work, raising thousands of pounds for charities including; Papyrus, NHS and Beauty With A Purpose. Isobel has also been volunteering for the Midlands International Aid Trust, distributing PPE (Face Visors) for local care homes and keyworkers including Acorns, Aldridge Nursing Home and the YMCA Carters Green.

After successfully winning the Miss Black Country title, Miss Lines accepted the Chief Ambassador role for the charity project WASUP (World Against Single Use Plastic). Since her involvement, Isobel has launched the project in Worcester and has also been visiting local schools within her community, presenting educational sessions upon the dangers of plastic pollution. You can visit WASUP via: www.wasupme.com

Isobel is also a Mental Health a Suicide prevention ambassador, raising awareness for the cause after her school friend Viren Patel from Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School passed away. ‘’During school, we were never taught about Mental Health, I believe this pays a strong role in my friends’ death. Thankfully, as of September, it is compulsory for schools to educate students on Mental Health following the National Curriculum changes’’. ‘’I wish to use the title as a platform to normalise Mental Health and help as many people who have suffered with what I have’’ Isobel added.

Since sixth form, Isobel has suffered with Acne, something which she believed may have impacted her chances within the competition. In 2019, Miss England introduced the ‘BARE FACED ROUND’ to encourage women to feel confident within their natural skin. For Isobel, this was a challenge as her natural skin was a mentally pressurised topic. However, both last year and this year, Isobel opened up about her struggles and submitting the images after almost deciding not to.

Isobel has been competing in Miss England for 4 years and has collectively raised over £10,000 for charity but had NEVER won a regional title. She first competed for Miss Black Country at 16 years old. In 2019, she was successful in reaching the Finals after placing Top 5 in Miss Birmingham and winning the Publicity round. This year, Isobel returned for one final time, competing in the Midlands Heat and was finally successful. ‘’I am beyond overwhelmed. Competing for 4 years and raising over £10,000 for charity has been an incredible journey but finally winning a regional title means so much to me. It feels like a massive weight off my shoulders. This is evidence that hard work and determination will always pay off’’.

Away from Miss England, Isobel is a well-known Equestrian rider, specialising in Showing and has competed at the Horse of the Year Show for 8 consecutive years and Royal International for a decade. HOYS is hosted at the NEC, Birmingham, neighbour to the Miss England Finals venue. She is also the Chairwoman (2 years) of the University of Worcester’s Equestrian Club and Student’s Union RAG committee as well as working at the YMCA charity in West Bromwich.

Isobel will represent the BLACK COUNTRY at the next MISS ENGLAND FINALS.
