Local beauty queen and former Miss Swindon Hannah Golding has made it into the internationals finals of Face of the Globe, with the finals being held in Disneyland Paris.
Hannah, who won the title of Face of the Globe North England, back in October will represent England and competed against 120 other nations to bring home the overall title.
Hannah said: “It’s my second time representing England in the International stages of this competition, last year I just missed out but this year I have been competing a lot of charity work as well as making my outfits for the grand final! I hope I can make Swindon proud and bring home the crown!”
Hannah 26, a personal trainer at Nuffield, has been fundraising for the Rainbow Child Foundation, one of the chosen charities for the competition, as well as local charities in Swindon. She said: “I held a charity pageant here in Swindon, as well as a Winter land ball and a clothes swap, raising nearly £1000 which will help so many children! I am also the patron for the Beni Bear club, who help children with difficulties here in Swindon so it’s been great to help out and make a difference! It’s nerve wracking when you go against other countries but I’ve been competing for 6 years now so finger’s crossed this year I can go all the way!”
Hannah won’t be the only Wiltshire beauty queen competing in the international finals, Ruth Wade, former Miss Wiltshire 2012 will also be competing, as well as Jade Dando from Royal Wootton Bassett who will be competing in the national finals later this year.
Hannah added: “It’s always great to compete with friends, we all met through pageants and continue to help each other but it can be scary competing against friends!”
Straight from Paris she will then be representing Wiltshire in the Miss Inspiration finals, being held in Cardiff competing at a national level as well as competing in the new pageant in Swindon called Miss Sparkling Beauty which is held in May at South Marston hotel.
