A gymnastics teacher from Leamington is hoping to be able to raise thousands of pounds for charity as she progresses to the finals of a regional beauty pageant.

Natalie Nason, who used to cheer for the Coventry Dynamite cheerleading squad, has won a place as Miss Leamington in the final of the Miss Coventry and Warwickshire championship.

The 22-year-old has only just passed on her crown as Miss Rugby - which she has been for the past year - to her successor, but has already been crowned Miss Leamington and is now busy preparing an ‘eco’ outfit as part of the competition.

Natalie said: “I applied to Miss Leamington because I’ve loved being a role model as Miss Rugby and I really would like to continue my journey in my home town.

“The Miss Coventry and Warwickshire title would mean the absolute world to me. It will mean I get to carry on with my charity work - last year i made it to the Miss England finals and I raised £2,500 for the Miss World charity.

“I hope to still encourage everyone from all ages to be themselves and influence to women to be comfortable in their own skin and not try to be what they should think they should be. I really hope to do Leamington proud.”

The Miss Coventry and Warwickshire finals take place in Bedworth on March 26. Any businesses that would like to sponsor Natalie will have their logo on her sash and be included in her social media campaigns. Contact her on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MissEnglandFinal
