Rebecca Lancashire, a 20 year old University undergraduate, was chosen as Miss Diamond Yorkshire, to compete for the title Miss Diamond UK. Miss Lancashire is a patient of Rani Makkouk of Zing Dental Clinic in Albion Street, Hull, who is delighted to sponsor her during her bid to become Miss Diamond UK.
"Rebecca has a lovely personality and a confident smile which reflects the service we like to offer our patients," said Dr Makkouk. "As such it is a pleasure to have her as an ambassador of the Zing Dental Clinic. We congratulate her on being chosen as Miss Diamond Yorkshire and wish her success in the National Miss Diamond competition finals on Saturday 11 June at The Riviera Hotel, Weymouth."
Rebecca is studying for a degree in Music, primarily playing the flute, oboe and piano plus several other instruments and plans to go on to postgraduate studies in Music Psychology to gain a doctorate. She also enjoys singing and is a member of her university chapel choir.
"I am so proud to be a Miss Diamond United Kingdom finalist and thank Zing Dental Clinic for their sponsorship towards entering the national finals," said Rebecca. "Much of the work I have been doing since becoming Yorkshire region finalist has been with the Miss Diamond chosen charity Mind, highlighting and promoting their work in the region. It is a privilege to work with the team from Mind and to see the excellent service they provide to the community."
The UK winners of the Miss Diamond competition will have the choice of representing Britain at an international pageant in the USA or can choose an all-inclusive holiday for 2.
