SUTTON stunner Jade Keightley is busy raising cash for charity after being chosen as a finalist for the Miss Nottingham 2012 final on Sunday.
The pageant is raising cash for the competition’s official charity, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, which gives support to life-limited children and their families in the East Midlands.
She and other finalists are in the final stages of fundraising with the award going to the young woman who raises the most money for the hospice.
“The incredible team of people at Rainbows help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end,” said Jade.
Jade has organised a number of fundraising events, including Easter egg raffles, with donations coming from supermarkets in Mansfield and Ashfield with help from her partner and family members.
She even dressed up as Minnie and posed for photographs with youngsters, as well as gaining additional funds from a car boot sale and charity day at All Saints Primary School in Huthwaite.
“The experience was amazing, the smiles on the children’s faces was amazing to see and to hear parents say we made their day was very heartwarming,” she added.
“My total is still growing and I would love any more donations from companies or the public as every little donated goes such a long way.
“I would also like them to support me in the finals of Miss Nottingham.”
