A THURROCK beauty queen will be representing her country in Paris next year.
Courtney-Lee Collins is 16 and from Aveley. Last weekend she entered International Charity Pageant Face of the Globe, in a bid to win the chance to represent England in Disneyland Paris next year.
A spokesperson said: "We are thrilled to announce she scooped the awards for Miss Charity, raising Â£325 for the Rainbow Child Foundation, Miss Personality and Miss Publicity and was the overall teen winner, taking the title of Face of the Globe Teen England 2016.
Courtney-Lee won her all expenses paid trip, but we are now on the lookout for a sponsor to help with the chaperone expenses to make her dream come true.
"If there are any local businesses that are in a position to help her, however large or small please would they contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
"Courtney-Lee would be happy to help out at their publicity events, distribute their business literature at home and in Disneyland Paris. Their name will appear on her page on the Face of the Globe website and will be announced on stage as her sponsor. All terms and conditions of their requirements can be discussed.
"Courtney-Lee is an amazing young lady who spends her time fund raising 365 days a year, amongst other things running two online charity donation groups. She regularly donates to other organisations in need and is a regular donator to Basildon Hospital Children’s ward and as a visitor there dressed as a princess or as Disney film Frozen’s character Anna".
