missworld.com Teachers and pupils alike had a real treat this afternoon at Brent Knoll School, when they were visited by Miss World Chairman Julia Morley, Miss World Wenxia Yu, Miss England Charlotte Holmes & Miss Brighton Kitty Williams, who presented the school with a new coach. Handing over the keys, those in attendance also dropped into the classes to visit the children whose lives their hard work will soon be enriching.
Accepting the keys to the vehicle, Head Teacher John Sharpe was thrilled to bits, saying “the last 10 months have been a whole trail of events leading up to today… I couldn’t have dreamt that we’d be involved with such a great organisation… This is a result of a real team effort.”
This team effort involved all the contestants for the Miss England competition, individually raising money through sponsored walks, sky diving, and much more. Miss Brighton Kitty Williams personally raised the most money, raising £8740 through several different events. Speaking at the presentation, she said “It feels great to be here and see the impact and positive influence that we’ve had through our fundraising It’s just wonderful.”
Also presented to the School was a selection of artwork, including a piece by former Miss World Silvana Suarez, a renowned artist in her native Argentina.
Those in attendance were invited to take a tour of Brent Knoll, a specialist school for children with disabilities in the Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism spectrum. Stepping into classes and sharing a few moments with the children, meeting the incredible staff who help with the development of the youths, and taking the first ride in the coach were special moments of the day. Commenting of the day’s events, Miss England, Charlotte Holmes said “Today is what it’s all about. It epitomises why I entered this competition in the first place, it’s what Miss England is about, it’s what Miss World is about. Seeing the kid’s faces today makes the job worthwhile.”
