Busby girl Cloe Geddes is after crown and glory - and fundraising for a good cause in the process.

The 17-year-old is a teen finalist in this year’s Crown and Glory Scotland, representing East Renfrewshire.

The pageant is run to raise money for the Dean Puplett Appeal and NCCA UK, in honour of an eight-year-old boy who recovered from a deadly childhood cancer after diagnosis at age three.

Cloe, a former Williamwood High pupil now working at hair salon COCO on Eaglesham Road, told The Extra: “All the girls competing are encouraged to raise as much money as possible.

“As part of my fundraising, I have been gathering old unwanted clothes to take to Cash for Clothes, so that I can donate all the money to a charity bucket. I’m holding different events with stalls and raffles, and an online photo pageant called Miss Picture 
Perfect 2015.

“100% of the money I make will be going straight to Dean’s family.”

Cloe is no stranger to beauty contests, having placed second runner up earlier this year at Scotland Teen Queen.

She added: “I don’t have as much pageant experience as other contestants, but I’m not just in it to win.

“Pageants are a great way to make friends and to get more involved with your community. I just hope we can beat last year’s total of around £2,000.”
