PAGEANT contestants from all over the UK travelled to The Dress Studio in Warrington to celebrate a £500k charity milestone!
The pageant girls are competing in the upcoming Miss Teen Great Britain competition and visited The Dress Studio near Culcheth to celebrate a charity fundraising milestone for local business; Pageant Girl Ltd, who have raised over £500,000 for their chosen charities!
Owned by former Miss Cheshire winner Holly Pirrie, Pageant Girl Ltd organise three national beauty pageants annually and encourage their contestants to get involved in their local communities and raise money for charity.
The funds raised by Pageant Girl Ltd have helped Claire House Children’s Hospice, The Christie, and Together for Short Lives.
The Miss Teen Great Britain contestants visited The Dress Studio & Pageant Girl HQ to celebrate this incredible achievement and try on some evening gowns in preparation for the grand final which will take place at The Globe Theatre, Blackpool, in October. The lucky girls will be crowned at the grand final and will win a cash prize and introduction to a modelling agency, amongst many other prizes.
The Dress Studio are prom and pageant specialists and have dressed thousands of prom girls and beauty queens since they opened in 2012.
Holly, who ones The Dress Studio and Pageant Girl Ltd, said: “Having been involved in the pageant community for many years, it’s unfortunate to see a decline in Warrington girls competing in pageants recently, I would really love for that to change. I had the best time travelling the world through competing in pageants and want other local girls to have the same amazing opportunities as I did.”
The Pageant Girl competitions are open to ages 11+ and were created to be positive and confidence-building experiences for young girls and women. You don’t need any experience to take part and our finalists and winners are presented with some amazing opportunities which have recently included attending events in Portugal and modelling in New York Fashion Week. The possibilities are endless!
