MILFORD, CONN. — Sara Manchipp, a Subway “Sandwich Artist,” recently defeated 54 other women to earn the title of Miss Wales 2011. She went on to compete in the Miss World Pageant in London held this week.

As part of the Miss World “Beauty with a Purpose” program, Ms. Manchipp and her fellow Miss and Mister Wales contestants raised about $145,000 for the Joshua Foundation, a charity that provides life experiences for children with cancer and their families.

Ms. Manchipp works a few shifts a week at Subway while studying psychology and counseling at Swansea Metropolitan University.

Other famous “Sandwich Artists” include actor Jason Biggs, National Football League player Dave Kircus, former Major League Baseball pitcher Mark Wohlers and musician Jim James.
