Wyre Forest | News | Published:

A student nurse is hoping to be crowned Miss England after getting through to the final 20 of her county's regional heat.

Beckie Price, from Kidderminster, has beaten off competition from 400 applicants to reach the finals of Miss Worcestershire 2016.

If she wins the coveted title, the 19-year-old will represent her county at the national finals of Miss England.

The finalists will undertake work such as charity fundraising, a fitness bootcamp and social media publicity in advance of the finals later this month.

Second-year student nurse Beckie said: "It is a privilege to get this far and to be in the final again is amazing.

"It would be an honour to represent my county at Miss England.

"I also aim to raise a lot more money than last year. My chosen charity is Beauty With A Purpose and to be in this position to raise both money and awareness is something I really cherish."

Organiser Rachael Barker said: "The finalists this year are truly incredible.

"They are all hard-working, dedicated young ladies who want to make a real difference to the community in Worcestershire.

"I am really excited about the event but the competition is so tough I have no idea who is going to win."

All the women are aged between 17 to 25, with the finals taking place at the Sixways Stadium on Sunday, January 10.

Organisers are looking for someone who is 'well presented, confident and willing to represent the county'.

Individual round titles are also up for grabs including Miss Charity, Miss Popularity and Miss Sportswoman.

Chloe Palmer, the current Miss Worcestershire,said her time with the title was 'incredible', which included 'amazing' experiences such as turning on the Christmas lights in Worcester and starting the Race for Life run.
