UK’s National Miss 2021 contestant Jade Hall is all set to compete at the national competition as Miss Flyde Coast 2021 as she has shared her brave story of battle with Coeliac disease.

The 28-year-old has raised more than £3,500 for The Christie and Coeliac UK charities since she first started entering beauty pageants in 2015. As Miss Fylde Coast 2021, she wishes to support similar charities in UK’s National Miss 2021.

Jade works as a nursery nurse at a special school in Blackpool. She was diagnosed with coeliac disease, a condition where your immune system attacks your own tissues when you eat gluten, four years ago.



She said, “Coeliac UK is very close to my heart. Ever since being diagnosed I try and raise awareness of this illness. I manage my coeliac disease daily by a very strict diet. I have to be very aware of how my food is prepared as I could get poorly from cross contamination.”

“I have been in hospital before with pain from eating gluten. It can be very, very painful. I love my job at the school. I also work as a vocalist whenever I can but due to Covid-19, I’ve not been able to get up on stage over the last year as much as I would have liked to”, she added.

Jade, who has previously been crowned Miss Charity in the UK Power Pageant for raising the most funds for a charity, has been supporting the Samaritan’s Purse shoebox appeal. “I managed to fill 20 boxes for children all over the world at Christmas. A lot of my friends and colleagues got involved with this and I was very grateful. On the run up to the final I plan to spread awareness of coeliac disease and raise money for the Christie Charity. Due to Covid-19 this is much harder than normal but I plan to do online raffles and baking to raise money. I will do my very best to bring the title home for Blackpool”, she added.
