BUSINESSES in Worcestershire are being invited to throw their support behind one of the finalists in this year’s Miss Worcestershire competition.

Of the 30 finalists in this year’s competition 17 have so far found a company willing to sponsor them while the remaining 13 are still on the lookout.

Sponsor companies will be invited to the finals at the Guildhall on Sunday, November 2 as well as being featured in advertising materials.

Miss England regional director Rachael Barker said all the hopefuls were still actively approaching companies to ask for their support.

“It gives the girls the opportunity to push those boundaries of their confidence to ask companies for support,” she said.

“To ask for a company to sponsor them they must first prepare what to say, contact the companies and believe in their cause.

“This teaches them more than any competition can – self belief.”
