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.
