Under the Patronage of Barrister & TV Personality; Mr Shaun Wallace. The first MCUK Patron.
We are delighted that the Barrister and TV Personality Mr Shaun Wallace has agreed to become our first official Patron.
Known for being one of the Chasers on ITV’s quiz show THE CHASE where he has the nickname: The Dark Destroyer, Mr Wallace made the following statement on 23rd June 2016:
"I'm delighted to announce that I've become a Miss Caribbean UK Patron. I attended the Miss Caribbean UK pageant IN 2015 and had a wonderful time and I think that Miss Caribbean UK is a really positive way to promote the Caribbean in the UK.
It is tremendous to see such a wonderful cause grow organically and I look forward to seeing British women of Caribbean descent continue to being promoted in such a positive light."
Miss Caribbean United Kingdom was set up as an event to promote all the different Caribbean countries under one umbrella. The event uses a pageant to promote, educate, inspire and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of the Caribbean within the United Kingdom.
We want to be a vehicle, to assist in bringing the Caribbean and its diaspora within the UK, closer. We want the old and younger generation Caribbean descendants to recognise the influence and impact that the Caribbean Diaspora has had on UK culture and thus, appreciate the importance of retaining the link with their Caribbean heritage.
