Fundraising for The Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS) Foundation UK CIO

We support people affected by SMS to have a positive future


Music completely changed my life, and this is the reason why I chose Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation UK as my charity to represent as a 2022 Miss Scotland Finalist - a charity that I am proud to have been ambassador for 6 years. 

I discovered I could sing in my early teens, a time when I was incredibly shy and didn't have much confidence. Since then, I have had the most wonderful opportunities to perform in venues here in the UK, and across the globe - a lot for a young girl who was too shy to even put her hand up in class!

During my time performing, I met Matthew Over - a young man with Smith-Magenis Syndrome who connected with my music and made me realise how music can have such an impact on people, no matter their age, disability or background. 

Since then, I have had opportunities to visit schools and events to talk to young people about how to use their talents to help others, working hard, overcoming lack of confidence and achieving goals no matter how big or small. 

Which is what I am doing now... in the final of Miss Scotland 2022! Something I only dreamed of since I was a little girl. 

 I am honoured to have a platform that allows me to shine light on this charity and raise funds to support the fantastic work they do.

Thank you for anything you decide to donate, it is beyond appreciated.
