An Epsom woman is through to the finals of a national beauty competition.

Casey Pragnell recently won the title of Miss Surrey Galaxy, this means that she will be competing in the grand final of Miss Galaxy England 2018 in March with winners from all over the country.

Casey said: “I am so excited to have made it to the final, it is a great achievement and I can’t wait to meet all of the other girls and start using my title to positively help the community.

“I have already started planning charity events to raise money, this is such an exciting time!”

The final is being held in March 2018 at Park Hall Hotel, Lancashire.

The winner of the United Kingdom Galaxy crown will also receive £250 voucher for a pageant dress from The Dress Studio, a sash, Schwarzkopf hair products, earrings, and fake tan.

The champion will also travel to the USA with contestants from all over the world, to compete in the Miss Galaxy International final, which is being held in the summer of 2018.

The UK has previous success at the Galaxy International Pageant, winning an international crown eight times and have had placements in every division for the past four years.
