Nominate your local hero for 2017 Pride of Britain award

Nominations are open for Pride of Britain 2017

Nominations are now open for the 2017 ITV Fundraiser of the Year – part of the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.

We’re looking for people with an inspirational story to tell – individuals who’ve really made a difference to others through their creative or tireless fundraising efforts.

Last year, Anglia East’s winner was Jane Allen, from Canvey Island. She set up a charity helping children with brain or spinal tumours, by sending them treasure boxes and funding holiday homes and grants.
