Clitheroe girl wins regional heat

This Is Lancashire: Poppy-Mai Dalby Poppy-Mai Dalby

A FOUR-year-old from Clitheroe has been selected to represent the North West at the Face of the Globe annual beauty pageant in October.

Poppy-Mai Dalby was crowned the Mini North West Face on Saturday at the heats in Chester. The Brookside Primary School pupil competed against seven other children in her category to win her place in the finals at Disneyland Paris in October.

The youngest of six, Poppy-Mai, who lives in Salthill Road, staged a two-mile fancy dress walk from Clitheroe Castle park at the start of the month to raise funds for the Rainbow Child Foundation. It was set up by 2005 X Factor quarter-finalist Chico Slimani, to help underprivileged children around the world, providing schools with sanitation, farm seeds bank, and HIV awareness programmes.

Inspirational little girl, such a young age fundraising for children in other countries. Beauty pageants are not about make -up and hair and all the things they have the stigma for , they are all about inner beauty and showing and gaining confidence in young ladies around the world. well done Poppy

The parents should be charged with child abuse, what kind of parent puts their young daughter into one of these competitions, they are robbing their children's youth.
