I have had the pleasure of being Miss Dorset for a year already, during which time I raised £9486 for charity.

I also cleaned any littered beaches I came across which I have continued doing in England.

I am also going to Uganda next year to help build a playground for a local school to allow children to play which helps with their cognitive development.

Miss England 20/21 Grand Final Announcement
Third time lucky !!
The Nations Entry to the 70th Miss World
The Director of the Miss England contest Angie Beasley has announced the new date of the next grand final.
“Hopefully it will be third time lucky! The Miss England final was origionally planned for July 2020 but Due to the pandemic it was then postponed to October. After Miss World announced they are postponing the 70thfinal until at least Autumn 2021 we decided to reschedule again especially after the recent government announcements! ” Said Angie
The next Miss England final has now been moved for the THIRD TIME and is now planned as a 2 day event for the 16th& 17thApril 2021 in Birmingham .
Finalists from across England have already reached the final stages with some regional contests having to postpone their events until as late as March 21 due to regional lockdown restrictions.
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 this year which isn’t bad considering the situation “ said Angie.
Miss England contestants have also promoted various campaigns during the pandemic including attending Canal & Beach Cleans with Wasupme and planted 10,000 trees through the WeDoEthical Tree Planting Campaign .
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

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.

You can do it all- Meet Cyber Bullying Mentor Keflyn
2 months ago
Juggling her career, CIMA exams, mentoring, charity, modelling, raising awareness of environmental issues and encouraging others to strive for their dreams through her career advice as an alumnus – but Miss England National Finalist Keflyn isn’t done yet!
A global issue very close to Keflyn’s heart, crime against the most vulnerable in our society – child abuse. She strongly feels against the mistreatment of children, after witnessing disadvantaged children being abused in the streets of India, “Those images will never leave my head”, says Keflyn. Keflyn is set out to implement her campaign across England to help victimised youngsters live a normal, fun childhood, whilst also volunteering with NSPCC to educate the young generation on the serious matter.
Around 50,000 children in England are looked after by their local authority and more than 50,000 children are on a Child Protection Plan due to experience/risk of abuse or neglect, ONS 2019. Studies show children who have experienced child abuse are four times more likely to suffer from mental illnesses and are more likely to experience abuse later in their life. Keflyn believes children will benefit from education on how to address such situations, encouragement to speak up without fear and embarrassment and help to deal with the trauma now and in the future.
Keflyn became a Cyber-bullying mentor 8 years ago whilst she was in secondary school. “For children facing abuse or neglect at home, school is an escape from the mistreatment they receive, but what if they get mistreated in school too or online? Where is their escape?”, says Keflyn. A rapid increase in social media usage, also led to an increase in online-bullying, Keflyn took this opportunity to feature on a BBC Panorama documentary to raise awareness on the matter. As child abuse rose by 16% during Covid-19, Keflyn continued mentoring throughout the pandemic and did not limit it to children only – “The Mental Health Check Up by Keflyn” is still ongoing.
“I have discovered my life purpose during my Miss England journey and Covid-19, it has been an immeasurable blessing and I want to serve others selflessly. I am so blessed in every aspect of my life; I don’t want to live an amazing life if I can’t help others live their best life too.”, says Keflyn.
Keflyn was awarded as Miss London Top Fundraiser and was 2nd runner up in Miss London, she held a Virtual Carboot Sale using Instagram live to fundraise from her back garden for Beauty With A Purpose. Another successful fundraiser held by Keflyn was her Fitness Bootcamp in efforts to fundraise for the first ever Virtual Miss England Semi Final.
After recently becoming a WASUP Ambassador, Keflyn is truly demonstrating that you can do it all. A day after the Miss London photoshoot at the Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites & Residences, she held a canal clean with other WASUP Ambassadors, Miss England Finalists and Canals & Rivers Trust.
Her next mission is to raise awareness of the incredible Linda Mary Clarke Memorial Award, encouraging women in STEM careers to strive for their dreams with the financial support of the award. With her “you can do it all” attitude, she wants to inspire women to apply for the award. As an alumnus for her university, Keflyn has delivered career advice on student panels whilst representing the University of West London.
“Miss England is an amazing platform to do amazing things, you can reach the nation and beyond with the doors Miss England opens for you. I am so grateful to Angie and the Miss England team for going above and beyond to continue the Miss England 2020 contest despite a global pandemic.”, says Keflyn.

Dorset’s brave Alina Green is set to dive with Sharks to raise money for good causes as her next challenge in the lead up to competing in the next Miss England finals !
Due to the incredible fundraising Alina has done during her year as Miss Dorset , Miss Dorset organiser Kelly Levell has extended Alina’s reign to another year and she will compete for the 2nd time in the final of the Miss England contest after being the 2nd top fundraiser of the year in the contest.
“My next fundraiser is doing a shark dive!! As I have my open water PADI license I wanted to put it to use and challenge myself by diving and feeding sharks!!”
Taking place on the 2nd October at the Bear Grills Adventure in Birmingham, all donations will be going to Miss World’s Beauty With a Purpose Charity and We Do Ethical’s tree planting pledge. The dive is also supporting shark conservation with the shark trust.
Alina is a keen polo player, sky diver, zip liner, mountain climber, officer cadet and fashion student set to compete in the Miss England beauty contest finals.

Last year, the Miss Eco Award judge, Kelly Levell asked the contestants to make a #WearItGreen themed ‘eco-outfit’ for the finals, and this year added the goal to collect tree planting pledges to help the UK become carbon neutral and help tackle our world’s climate crisis.
Alina told the News: “As Miss Dorset 2019 I did multiple beach cleans, helped feed the homeless, raised £9,486 for various charities such as the Chronicle Sunshine fund, made kangaroo pouches for those affected in the Australian fires, made scrubs bags and ‘button band’ mask holders for the NHS. I also made protective masks for the local vets, stood up for Black Lives Matter and educated myself, as well as just changing my lifestyle to be more eco-conscious.
“Continuing as Miss Dorset 2020/21 I hope to carry on helping my community and raising awareness of fast fashion as well as helping with the collection of more tree planting pledges.”
So far this year Alina has collected over 800 tree planting pledges that not only offset CO2 pollution, but also aid African families out of poverty and hunger, whilst increasing biodiversity for native wildlife.
