We are backing Miss Scotland as it’s all about beauty with a purpose, where the winner has a fantastic opportunity to raise some real cash for their chosen charity. Over the last five years, the winning Miss Scotland’s have raised almost One Million Pounds for charitable causes, and we’re delighted get behind the competition.
