A 14-year-old girl from Norwich with a place in the final of a national teen beauty pageant is fundraising for a children's charity.
Anais Rider, from Costessey, will take part in the grand final of Miss Junior Teen Great Britain 2018, after winning Miss Junior Teen Norwich, and competing with hundreds of teenagers from across the UK to secure her spot.
And as part of the competition she is fundraising for the charity Together for Short Lives, which she described as a really worthy cause.
Anais said: 'I am so excited to have made it to the final.
'It is a great achievement, as there were so many gorgeous semi-finalists.'
