Alex Evangelou, 24, holds the title for Oxfordshire and is a social work student who advocates against domestic abuse following her pledge to help others overcome the debilitating experience that she has suffered in the past. The ‘green’ challenges to plant trees that she has taken part in so far includes the green slime bath plunge, only eating green foods for 24hrs and a 5k run across her local nature reserve. She is a strong minded and caring individual who will never give up.
Olivia Bulmer 20, holds the title for Durham and works as a response call handler. She knows how to work well under pressure as she handles 101 calls for the police. She has also collected over 200 tree planting pledges alone with the target to help Miss England reach their goal of 20,000 tree planting pledges before the finals!
All of the Miss England changemakers have earned their finalist tiles through green and social positive actions.
They aim to promote ethical living to tackle global warming and encourage people to offset their carbon footprints. This will help our world become carbon neutral, starting with the goal of carbon neutrality for the UK before 2050.
This year, the founder of We Do Ethical and Miss England South West organiser Kelly Levell asked the contestants to make a #WearItGreen themed ‘eco-outfit’ for the finals, adding the goal to collect tree planting pledges to help the UK become carbon neutral to help tackle our climate crisis.
Kelly told the News: “This year’s ambassadors are also working with Plastfree and Wasup, organising litter-picks across the country to tackle single use plastic. Working together as changemakers in the lead up the the Miss England finals on activities including beach clean ups, making COVID masks, scrubs bags and ‘button band’ mask holders for the NHS. Alina Green has also made protective masks for the local vets, stood up for Black Lives Matter and educated herself, as well as changing her lifestyle to become more eco-conscious.”
So far this year the Miss England finalists have collected over 10,000 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.
