So far, she has made public appearances, ran in 5k events, and raised money for the pageant’s chosen charity, Claire House Children’s Hospice, and taken on extra fundraising for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. The pageant is aimed to be a positive experience for teenagers.

Emma said: “It would be incredible to win. I would love to keep doing charity work. It’s been good fun.”
