Tia Carter, a local Leicestershire resident, won the title of Miss Leicestershire 2020 back in April. This year’s contestants were all invited to raise money for The Y as part of the Miss Leicestershire contest. Tia raised £220 for us which is an incredible achievement given the circumstances faced by the contestants. Tia was the first Miss England finalist to be crowned at home in Leicester by her older sister during lockdown. Along with her sister Sapphire, they became the only sisters in the history of Miss Leicestershire to both hold the title (Sapphire was Miss Leicestershire in 2017). Tia’s sponsor for this year is Richard Clarke.
Tia has chosen The Y and Warning Zone, both important charities, to support during her time as Miss Leicestershire. Tia will be launching a raffle to raise funds for both causes on the 31st of July and we’ll share details of this as soon as we can. Taking part in the raffle is an easy way you can support The Y and Warning Zone. From September onwards, Tia will be preparing for the Miss England Finals currently being planned as a socially distanced live event in October. We wish Tia all the very best of luck with the raffle and her preparations for the finals.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Miss England for selecting us as the chosen charity for Miss Leicestershire. We were delighted to help some of the contestants with their fundraising. Beauty with a Purpose has also pledged an incredible £6000 which will cover the costs of running one of our move on houses for an amazing 12 months. Thank you!
