Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, like many other event businesses, the Miss England organiser was forced to cancel a series of events for the Miss England contest scheduled to be held between March – June …

its our busiest time for Miss England heats all over the country and it had already taken months planning at different venues ” said Angie who has been running competitions for over 30 years .

Many of the contestants had already started raising funds for Charities as part of the Miss World contest Ethos is Beauty with a Purpose .I didn’t want to let the contestants down by calling it off altogether . At first I thought we had no choice.  But eventually I thought the best way forward was to run the contest online starting with Miss Leicestershire contest , our first contest of the season . The contestants seemed to have enjoyed the virtual experience so far” said Angie.

The Miss Leicestershire contest was due to be held at Leicester’s oldest theatre the Y Theatre on 27th March & contestants were raising funds for the Y sponsor a House Campaign the week of the lockdown .

3 of the top 5 contestants Tia & Emily Rowlands & Khushboo Patel raised over £720 collectively for the charity and Miss World Beauty with a Purpose charity donated £6,000 the Y Sponsor a House Campaign Charity which will pay for a 5 bedroomed house for homeless youngsters living in Leicester. Khushboo Patel became the Top fundraiser raising £326 and both Emily ( 1st runner up) and Kushboo have now won a place in the Miss England next semi final.
