A BOROUGH beauty is hoping to shoot her way to success and be crowned Miss Black Country this spring after taking over Studley with two charity evenings.
Hayley Farmer, who lives in Crabbs Cross, is able to enter the competition as she was born in Sandwell, despite having lived in Redditch for 14 years and attending RSA Academy Arrow Vale and Walkwood Middle School.
The 24-year-old, who works at Broad Lane Leisure in Alcester, will compete for the Miss Black Country crown on May 22 at Dudley’s Copthorne Hotel.
It is Hayley’s first time entering a beauty pageant, and said: “I’ve always wanted to be Miss England and came across the regional heats but I’ve been trying to get up the courage to enter.
“I would love to be an ambassador for the area and a role model for people to look up to.”
If Hayley is successful in her quest to become Miss Black Country, she will automatically be entered into the finals of Miss England 2016.
She’s currently busy raising funds for the competition’s charity – Beauty With a Purpose – which is at the heart of the Miss World pageant and an important part of Miss Black Country.
On Thursday (April 28) Hayley took over Studley’s Royal Oak pub, hosting a pool tournament with all proceeds going to the good cause.
The Alcester Road pub will also be the venue for a charity night next Friday (May 6) at 7.30pm which will see live music, raffle prizes on offer and a photo booth to capture the fun.
Tickets, priced at just £3, are available from Hayley via http://tinyurl.com/hoyhthk .
