Now that she has been crowned Pure UK Miss United Kingdom, Amy will be heading to Ohio in the USA next summer to compete in the Pure international finals.
Amy said she was amazed to win the competition, held in Warrington, and that she intends to continue her charitable work.
“In the year ahead I hope to use my title as much as possible and want to continue my charity fundraising for the Salvation Army.”
Amy, who won the “Miss” category – ages 20 to 29, also wishes to raise money for The Migraine Trust, having suffered from hemiplegic migraine attacks from a young age.

“I have suffered with hemiplegic migraine attacks since I was 14 and would love to raise awareness of the condition and how serious it can be.”
Organiser Matt Trayford said all contestants at this year’s competition were brilliant and Amy was a deserved winner.
