ONE Tiverton girl could fulfil her modelling dreams if she wins a beauty pageant next year.

Jade Dawtry, 20, found out that she was selected as a finalist in the Miss Galaxy England contest.

The pageant is held nationwide over a weekend in the beginning of March in Lancashire and sees Miss and Miss Teen Galaxy England, Scotland, Wales until Mrs Galaxy is crowned.

The former Heathcoat Primary School and Exeter College student sent in her photographs to enter the competition online and found out last week that she had made the final shortlist.

If successful, Jade hopes to raise money for Children’s South-West – if anyone is able to sponsor Jade you can contact her on
