Kilwinning's Miss Ayrshire held a successful charity Ladies Night last week.

Eighteen-year-old Shelly Smith, who was crowned Miss Ayrshire 2018-19 back in November, hosted a ladies night for Kidney Research UK in Taylor’s on Saturday, April 6.

And the former Pennyburn and Kilwinning Academy pupil told the Times the event raised £400 for the charity.

Shelly Smith said: “It was so great when it all kicked off, we had butlers and we played loads of games – the butlers were great fun. There was also a raffle and a mini auction as well that raised an extra £100.

“A few people signed up for the Kidney Research sponsored walk as well which is in September.

“I became Miss Ayrshire back in November. It was a pageant with four rounds in the Dumfries Arms against other girls and I came out the winner.

“I’m also going to do a drag night as well, I’m just organising that for June.”
