emilia_MG_0040 - 300West Norfolk girl Emilia Symington is hoping to be crowned the next Miss England by modelling outfits exclusively from charity shops that cost less than ten pounds.

Emilia, 20, comes from Massingham but is currently a student at the University of Nottingham.

Emilia said, “All of the clothes I buy come from charity shops. Taking part in Miss England is one of the most exciting opportunities I’ve ever faced. One of the aspects of the competition is raising money for Hope Against Cancer, which is an amazing charity. The fact that the money I raise will fund research into the causes and treatment of cancer just makes it so much more worthwhile!

“I’m probably the least likely person to be a model; I’m clumsy, I’m curvy, I’ve got acne, my hair’s constantly a mess, and I don’t know the first thing about fashion! But, this competition is giving me the opportunity to show that beauty doesn’t have to have a huge price tag. All of the clothes I’ll be wearing on the catwalk have been bought from a charity shop and the entire outfit will cost less than ten pounds.

“It just goes to show that looking great doesn’t have to cost a fortune, and it doesn’t matter who you are; you can do something incredible if you put your mind to it.”

The next step for Emilia is to take part in the regional finals in Nottingham. The winner of the 2016 Miss Nottingham gong, announced next Thursday, will represent the city for a year and also be entered for the Miss England competition, and potentially Miss World.
