Beauty queen's help for charities
A BEAUTY queen has held a fundraising ball in support of two charities.
Imogen Chapman, a former Miss Teen Bristol, won the Miss Teen Great Britain title at the grand final in Blackpool in November 2018. The 19-year-old from Emersons Green competed against more than 40 other girls aged 16 to 19 from across the nation, and had been working towards the national title for three years.
During her time as Miss Teen Bristol, Imogen raised more than £2,000 for Together for Short Lives, a national charity helping children with life-limiting conditions and their families, as well as a further £1,000 for local charity Bristol Outreach Services for the Homeless (BOSH).
Following this, Imogen held her second fundraising ball for both charities on Saturday April 27 at the Clifton Pavilion at Bristol Zoo Gardens.
In total 85 people attended the event, including lots of Imogen’s family and friends, as well as Bristol-based singer Terry Cole who also performed. Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner, and there was also a raffle and silent auction with prizes donated by many local businesses.
Imogen told the Voice: “The whole evening managed to raise just short of £1,300, which I am so pleased with, and am so happy to say that both BOSH and Together for Short Lives will benefit from these funds.
“Last weekend I was fortune enough to have been invited to visit Charlton Farm, one of the hospices that benefits from the funds raised for Together for Short Lives. It was one of the most incredible hospices that I have had the pleasure of visiting, and I am so proud to know that it is my local children's hospice.
“My Miss Teen Great Britain journey has been three years long, and I am so excited to see what the last few months of my reign may bring.”
Imogen would also like to thank her sponsors for their support. They are Style Collection in Downend, Sammi H Makeup, Perfect Nails Fishponds, Bristol Musical Theatre and Natural Beauty by Clarabella.
