Imogen said “ If I were to win Miss England, I would use the Beauty with a Purpose platform to bring attention to and help fundraise for period poverty within the UK.

This is because I believe it is crucial to destigmatise the shame which is attached to periods and help aid the lack of financial funding surrounding them”
