MISS Wales finalist, Vanessa Owen is hosting a large-scale charity event called Party with a Purpose in The Queen Hotel in Chester on April 3.

Vanessa, 25, from Ruthin is a finalist in the Miss Wales competition which is the Welsh qualifier to the largest beauty pageant in the world, Miss World. The competition is dedicated to empowering young women, fundraising for good causes and showcasing Wales’ health, beauty and fashion offering.

Party with a Purpose is a charity fundraiser for Beauty with a Purpose (registered charity number 1142826), which is the Miss World charity, providing aid to disadvantaged children around the world.

The event is also being held in conjunction with the launch of a brand-new non-profit organisation which Vanessa has founded, called Unite Theatre Projects.

Unite Theatre Projects is a social enterprise aiming to improve inclusivity and accessibility to regional theatre.

In December 2019, Vanessa successfully managed to raise £10,000 to launch the non-profit organisation through Crowdfunding, after being accepted onto NatWest’s Back Her Business scheme.

Vanessa said, “I am so grateful for all of the support I have received with both Unite Theatre Projects and my Miss Wales campaign. I’m really excited to see what else we can achieve, and I hope Party with a Purpose will bring together our community to celebrate all the incredible talent we have in this area whilst raising money for a great cause.

"Miss Wales has been a fantastic experience so far; I’ve made new friends, grown in confidence and feel I am on my way to empowering women to believe we can do anything we put our minds to.”
