sponsors Face of Europe

Face of Europe welcome party - Folkestone harbour supports many local projects – and is delighted to be helping Gisele Buckingham, who is a travel consultant at the Hythe firm.

Gisele started her own company with co-founder Lucie Hide in 2010 named Face of Europe. And since then, the European pageant has become well established in the beauty calendar.

This year’s competition began with heats across Europe, and the finals were held at Disneyland® Paris between December 6 and December 9, 2011.

The Face of Europe welcome party was held at Folkestone harbour on December 5. And associate directors Anthony Clarke-Cowell and Sean Hagger presented contestants with branded satin sashes during the event.

Sean Hagger, Associate Commercial Director, said: “We were delighted to be invited to attend this event – and pleased to see one of our team show their entrepreneurial flair.”

Gisele Buckingham said: “I have been a member of the team for some time.

“I was absolutely bowled over when the company agreed to support my event by sponsoring the sashes.”
