by | 30 May 2024 | Notice, Retford

Charlotte Lister from Retford is no stranger to pageants, having held three national titles and competed internationally representing the UK twice. She has now been selected as a finalist for Ms Great Britain.

Miss Great Britain is the longest running and one of the most prestigious pageants in the UK. In 2020 it added the Ms Great Britain title.

The event will take place on Friday 18th October at the Athena in Leicester. It is set to be a night of glamour and entertainment honouring the achievements and shared goals of the 75 grand finalists competing for the coveted titles of Ms Great Britain and Ms Great Britain Classic.

A panel of expert judges will face the challenging task of selecting the winners. The audience is in for a treat with a spectacular catwalk-style stage show featuring all 75 national finalists, along with live entertainment and a delectable three-course meal.

Charlotte said: “I’ve watched the Miss GB pageant closely for years since Ashley Powell won in the Miss GB title as she is from South Yorkshire. This really is a dream come true and I can’t wait for October!

“But in the meantime I have some incredible appearances lined up such as snorkelling with sharks for charity, abseiling for The Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital and running Race for Life. It’s also great to be working with my sponsor The Crown Hotel Bawtry once again, who have supported me with my charity work over the last 10 years.”

Charlotte and her sponsor, The Crown Hotel Bawtry, have enjoyed a long-standing relationship that started over ten years ago with a ‘sleep out’ taking place at the hotel for charity Safe@Last. The Crown has since supported Charlotte with her endless charity events and fundraising for Cancer Research and the RSPCA.

Craig Dowie MD commented: “What a super achievement for Charlotte to make it through to the finals of such a prestigious event and a huge platform for her involved charities. Charlotte is totally dedicated, and it seemed a great opportunity to get involved and sponsor her on this journey!”

The Crown Hotel is in the heart of the beautiful market town of Bawtry. For more information visit www.crownhotel-bawtry.com.
