Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Notice To Benefits Claimants -

A teenager from South Ash­ford is pre­par­ing to take part in a na­tional mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion for the sec­ond year run­ning. Me­gan Bullen, 16, has been se­lected to run in the ed­i­to­rial cat­e­gory in the Top Model UK com­pe­ti­tion.

Last year Me­gan won the pub­lic vote award in her cat­e­gory af­ter se­cur­ing more than 3,000 votes – set­ting a new record for the com­pe­ti­tion.

The North School stu­dent said: “I feel I’m more pre­pared and know what to ex­pect this time around.

“It was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence last year and I wanted to be a part of it again. This time with more con­fi­dence and hope­fully very lit­tle or no nerves.”

Me­gan, who is be­ing spon­sored by Ash­ford florist Carol Mcguirk, of Am­ber­moon­shine Florist, is plan­ning a se­ries of events to raise funds for the Top Model’s char­ity part­ner­ship, Chil­dren with Can­cer UK, and hopes to top the £2,400 she raised last year.

“I’m hop­ing to dou­ble the money I raised last year, but I will need a lot of help in achiev­ing this,” she added.

Me­gan is cur­rently look­ing for do­na­tions for a raf­fle and auc­tion.

Re­hearsals for the com­pe­ti­tion start on Sun­day (Jan­uary 12) in Lon­don, where all en­trants will have the chance to be se­lected to walk for Fash­ion In­ter­na­tional at Lon­don Fash­ion Week.

The fi­nals will take place in April.

All votes cost £1, with funds ben­e­fit­ing char­ity, Chil­dren with Can­cer UK. To do­nate prizes con­tact Me­gan at http://­vqq4
