The first Miss Yorkshire beauty contest will be held in Leeds next month, with some of the proceeds going towards a children’s cancer charity.

The event, held at the O2 Academy on Sunday, October 21, aims to celebrate not only beauty but also the talent and diversity of the area.

Organisers claim it will give a platform to many individuals who are striving to improve themselves above their circumstances and more girls are being sought to take part.

The contest will support CLIC Sargent, a cancer charity for children and young people and £5 from every ticket purchase will be donated.

CLIC Sargent has social care teams at Leeds General Infirmary.

Jo Warmington, fundraising manager for Yorkshire, said: “We’re delighted that Miss Yorkshire has chosen to support CLIC Sargent.

“Money raised will help us make a difference to children and young people with cancer.”
