A Mansfield hairdresser is hoping to be crowned Miss London and Miss Hippodrome after making it through to the final of the pageant.
With no experience of pageants Portia Hickman (24) will travel to the capital this month for training, before taking to the stage on 12th May to find who will be crowned the winner.
To help her bid for the title, Portia needs to raise money for charity, and as part her fundraising drive, she will be giving free hair cuts at the Hair Emporium on Kirkby’s Lowmoor Road on Sunday, 12th and Monday, 13th April.
The local hopeful said: “The best thing about the competition is raising funds for charity.
“I’m excited to be taking part in a competition that has a beautiful purpose.”
