FOUR Victorias from Southend have been named as the faces of their namesake, the Victoria Shopping Centre.
The centre launched the competition as Calling All Victorias to find ladies of all ages to become the faces of the centre.
Customers were asked to nominate themselves, friends or family explaining why they deserved to win and what made them stand out from the other Victorias in the town.
The judging panel, which included centre manager Dennis Baldry, selected four winners who best represented the shopping centre.
Victoria Prior, 45, Victoria Smith, 20, Victoria Roberts, 13 and Victoria Daly, one, were all chosen.
Winner Victoria Prior said: “I’m a market trader and it was my regular customers who’d seen the competition advertised and persuaded me to enter. I never thought I’d be a in with a chance, I was just pleased that so many people remembered my name!”
“I’m really excited to be chosen as one of the faces of The Victoria and being a local girl makes it even more special."
