Young women in Norwich showed their bravery last night when they walked over hot coals outside the Forum to raise money for charity.

Twenty Miss Universe Norfolk (MUN) finalists braved the scorching 1500C hot coals to raise money for the Strongbones Children’s charity, which helps youngsters suffering from brittle bone disease.

The MUN competition is organised by Think Training and Consultancy.

Louise Harris, from Think, said: “It was about walking, not running. The girls had been so excited about it.

“The point of the competition is to empower the girls – we have taken them on a real journey.

“The fire walk is a massive achievement for them. Our message for them is to stand up, be strong and be confident.”

MUN is the name for the official Norfolk qualifier for Miss Universe GB which, in turn, is the official qualifier for one of the biggest beauty pageants in the world, Miss Universe. The Miss Universe competition is owned by billionaire Donald Trump and NBC.

The Miss Universe Norfolk final will take place on Sunday, February 10.

  • Miss Universe? What a sham...they're all from Earth! I want to see some hot looking alien babes,with several heads,arms,and other body parts.Seriously though,aren't beauty pageants a bit outdated,even crass? I'm sure the ladies do their things for good causes and all,but they could do so anyway without having these pointless competitions.
