Is economising your New Year resolution? Doncaster beauty queen Charlotte Lister is going a step further.

The Bentley model and mum of one, currently Miss British Empire Sheffield, has taken the JCI UK Pound a Day Challenge 2014 and is living on a food budget of just £1 a day this week.

“I am raising money for Arthritis Research UK as part of my beauty queen duties. I’m a finalist in Miss DreamStreet Derby on March 2. Some of my family suffer from arthritis and I want to help,” says Charlotte, 26, who reckons she and partner James Mcewen spend at least £200 a month on food: “I will donate the money I save to the charity. I’ve been thinking of cheap but healthy meals.”
