A NUMBER of Miss Worcestershire finalists raised almost £150 for charity during a night out in Worcester.

The contestants – who are all hoping to claim the beauty contest crown in January – wore sashes and shook collection boxes at Alexanders champagne and cocktail bar on Saturday (December 12).

Money raised will support Beauty with a Purpose – a charity that works with disadvantaged children across the world.

Morgan Koronis, 20, a drama and performance student at the University of Worcester, organised the fundraiser with support from fellow finalists including Hannah Bishop and Stephanie Need.

She said: “It was a really great evening that helped raise both awareness and funds for the charity, as well as bring together some of the finalists to get to know each other better.

“Everyone was really generous and we are really grateful to the people who donated.

“I am so thankful to Alexanders, the whole team were so lovely, helpful and welcoming.”

Miss Koronis, who describes herself as “smiley, kind-hearted and lovable”, is also looking for companies to sponsor Beauty with a Purpose to help boost her donations.

The Miss Worcestershire 2016 finals will take place at the Sixways Stadium in Worcester on Sunday, January 10.
