Miss Teen Bristol sets sights on national title
Published on: 25 Aug 2017
TRADERS from Cleeve Wood Road shops are throwing their weight behind a local teenager in her campaign to support charitable causes.
Imogen Chapman, from Emersons Green, is one of the finalists in this year's Miss Teen Great Britain.
She is Miss Teen Bristol and is using her title to help the city's homeless, a cause she feels passionate about.
The 18-year-old, who is studying musical theatre at The Big Act in Bristol, has recently become the newest volunteer at a local charity called Help Bristol’s Homeless.
Imogen said: "From a young age I would round up my pennies and hand them out to people in need on the streets. I personally feel the younger generation require further education about the issue."
Alongside her homeless campaign, Imogen is also raising funds for a children's charity called Together for Short Lives, which supports youngsters with life threatening illnesses and their families. Imogen will be taking part in an abseil in order to raise funds for the charity.

Imogen said she was delighted to be sponsored by Downend traders: "I am deeply grateful for the business owners at Cleeve Wood Road for supporting me and helping me to be able to take part in the Miss Teen Great Britain pageant, and follow my dreams towards the crown."
Miss Teen Great Britain takes place October 23/24 at the Globe Theatre in Blackpool.
