Miss English beauty with heart raises funds for special needs school
Miss England 2011, Alize-Lilly Mounter, paid a visit to local primary school, Brent Knoll this afternoon to meet the children whose lives the finalists in the competition are set to change. Brent Knoll – a school for children with language and communication difficulties, and associated social and learning impairments, will be the recipients of the funds collectively raised by some of the contestants across the Miss England heats .
The school was allocated as a recipient of the Miss World, “Beauty with a Purpose” fundraising after the headmaster John Sharpe completed an application form. The school requires a lot of new, very specialist equipment, to aid the development of the children at the school. They are particularly, in desperate need of a new minibus in order to transport the children around, take them swimming and arrange school trips or outings. They would also like a build a fully functional sensory room complete with special lighting, a sound system and equipment, all of which will help with the children’s specialist development.
Miss England 2011, Alize-Lily Mounter said, “Raising money for charity is the real drive behind the Miss England, and Miss World competitions. I recently took a trip to Ghana and Kenya to help raise awareness of the causes the Miss World organisations is supporting over there and it is important that people realize what the competition is really about. It was lovely to meet the children personally and talk to the headmaster about how the Miss England finalists charity money will benefit the children at the school.”
Headmaster of Brent Knoll School, John Sharpe said, “We are really grateful to Alize-Lily for taking time out to come and visit thechildren. It means a great deal to them and us and the money raised by all the finalists in Miss England this year will go a long way to making a huge difference to the lives of the children at Brent Knoll. We really are very grateful to everyone for all their efforts.”
All the contestants in many of the Miss England regional qualifying heats across the country have been working hard all year to fundraise for the Beauty with a Purpose charity and the remaining 60 Miss England finalists are running their own charity events in their areas they live such as sky dives , sponsored runs , music events and more . The Miss England finalist who raises the most money for Beauty with a Purpose, will be automatically fast tracked through to the top 15 at the Miss England grand final. She will join the other award winners from Miss Stunning Style Queen, sponsored by Great Lengths, Miss Eco, the Top Model competition sponsored by Front Models, Miss England Got Talent round sponsored by Star Now, Sportswoman , Miss Beauty and the Beach Award and Miss Popularity.
This year the Miss England competition is sponsored by ‘Mauritius – it’s a pleasure’ the dream holiday destination, so the winner of Miss England will not only receive an all expenses paid trip to represent England at Miss World, they will also be whisked off to the island of Mauritius where they will participate in the Mauritius Carnival and help topromote the Mauritius Shopping Fiesta, which begins at the end of June.
