Sheffield beauty pageant contestant Charlotte Poulton is more than just a pretty face...
Charlotte is hoping her campaign to represent Sheffield in the Miss British Empire pageant will help her to raise money for charity.
Charlotte, aged 20, from Richmond, will be hosting a Ladies Night with the proceeds going to Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.
The event will include a raffle and stalls selling cake and some of the charity’s merchandise.
She said: “It’s great to be able to represent a local charity. Sheffield Children’s Hospital does such amazing work so it deserves some help.”
Charlotte was previously awarded the title of ‘Miss Charity’ when she entered the Miss South Yorkshire Pageant in March.
She raised £370 for local charities including Rotherham Hospice and Thornberry Animal Sanctuary by getting sponsored to wax the legs of her male friends.
Charlotte originally became involved with beauty pageants when her mum secretly entered her into Miss South Yorkshire.
Charlotte said: “I was being bullied and my confidence was quite low so my mum decided to enter me in the competition - I had absolutely no idea.”
After her success in the Miss Yorkshire pageant Charlotte went on to enter Miss Sheffield, winning fourth place and being voted ‘Miss Popularity’.
If Charlotte’s current campaign is a success she will get to represent Sheffield in the national rounds of the Miss British Empire pageant in London. Charlotte, who works at her mum’s beauty parlour, Glamour Lounge Beauty on Richmond Road, Sheffield, could then get to go to Athens for the international final.
Charlotte’s Ladies Night will take place from 6pm on October 4 at Glamour Lounge.
