Pageant queen raises hundreds for charity

Published on 23/11/18

A pupil from Great Yarmouth Charter Academy proved that beauty isn’t skin deep as she used her pageant success to raise money for charity.

Courtney Markwell was crowned Teen Face of England 2018 at the grand final of the Face Of Europe And The World charity pageant, which aims to inspire contestants to have fun and celebrate their achievements while raising money for good causes.

In the six months since her first pageant Courtney has raised over £200 for Headway, which supports people who have suffered brain injury, through events such as a sponsored five-mile walk.

She collected her grand prize at a glitzy gala evening at Disneyland Paris in November.

Courtney said: “I hope to continue doing pageants and raising money for charity.”
