Beautifully Inspiring… Challenging Beauty Pageant Stereotypes
Beautifully Inspiring is the perfect way to describe the Pageant Girl finalists.
For every pageant that we organise, we encourage the contestants to make the very most of their title. When our pageant finalists and queens are crowned, they have a choice – to let their sash & crown collect dust on a shelf… or, to put the crown to work and to have a year that truly counts. Every finalist and queen has the option to fund-raise for our chosen charities, as well as making public appearances within their local and national communities.
Since 2012, the Pageant Girl® competitions have raised over £390,000 for our chosen charities.
Pageant Girl® is proud to support The Christie Cancer Charity and Together For Short Lives.
The Christie is one of Europe’s leading cancer centres. The Christie is renowned as a world pioneer in the care, treatment and research of cancer. They are also the first UK centre to be officially accredited as a comprehensive cancer centre. From 2017, the fundraising donated on behalf of Pageant Girl® has contributed towards the construction and development of the UK’s first high energy proton beam therapy service. This will be one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, the other being built at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Together for Short Lives is a leading UK charity for children with life-threatening & life-limiting conditions. They help children and their families to access specialist children’s palliative care services, day and night, seven days a week—when and where they need it. The Miss Teen Great Britain finalists fundraise for Together for Short Lives and the funds raised are donated to the contestants’ local children’s hospice. This means that the finalists are fundraising for hospices that directly benefit their local communities.
Between 2012 & 2014, the Miss Teen Great Britain competition supported Claire House Children’s Hospice. During this time, an incredible total of over £40,000 was raised by the Miss Teen Great Britain contestants.
