May Parry has raised over £2,000...Young Walsall fan May Parry is raising money for charity after being chosen to represent England in an international beauty pageant called ‘Face of the Globe’.
May, aged 10, from Bloxwich, has won a place in the grand finals of this year’s competition, which are set to take place between the UK and Disneyland Paris in April.
The pageant supports ‘The Rainbow Child Foundation’ charity, which provides clean drinking water and education for underprivileged children around the world.
Last year, over £40,000 was raised by the Face of the Globe finalists.
The contestant who raises the most money is entitled to 10% - which will then go to their chosen charity.
May, a dedicated and competitive dancer who will also be performing at the grand finals, has so far raised over £2,000 for the Rainbow Child Foundation.
She has chosen to donate to the Acorns Children’s Hospice in Walsall if she makes the largest contribution – but she needs your help!
“May is very passionate about helping children who don’t have what she has,” said Maria, May’s mum.
“We’re very proud of her. “Her aim is to be a role model for children her age. In her words, she doesn’t want to be a normal kid who does nothing.
“She’s done cake sales, raffles, car boot sales and she raised over £1000 at a charity night in January.
“She’s also trying to support local charities and at Christmas she went out with Santa collecting money around Bloxwich and Walsall.
“She’s very inspirational to us.”
