All this week we're announcing our nominees for the ITV Fundraiser of the Year in the West of the Anglia region. We asked for your nominations for people in our region that go the extra mile to help others and raise money for charity. The winner will be heading to the glitzy Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards later this month.
Our third nominee in the West is Luke Claxton from Huntingdon. Luke spends all of his spare time fundraising for a children's charity. He says he does it for three reasons very close to his heart.

The Chief Executive of Hinchingbrooke Hospital says that no services will be cut despite fears that a planned merger with Peterborough Hospital would see clinics and departments moved.
Lance McCarthy says the hospital will be able to provide more services, but campaigners are worried about patients being put at risk.
"The whole nature of the work that we've been undertaking with colleagues at Peterborough is about trying to find solutions to sustain services on all three sites locally as they are, or enhance those services," he said.
"That's what we believe we can do through merging and that's what the full business case indicates."
The Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Police has admitted they could have done more to stop hate crime in the county, after figures spiked following the EU referendum.
Alec Wood says the force could have foreseen a rise in prejudice incidents - which included anti Polish leaflets being circulated in Huntingdon.
"Committing a crime because of somebody's nationality, religion, race, colour, gender, sexuality is abhorrent," he told ITV News Anglia.
"We are really determined to investigate robustly anyone who commits offences of that nature."

A sailing club based at Grafham water near Huntingdon has welcomed the opening of a new club and boathouse.
Grafham Water Sailability is a club which helps disabled people get out on the water.
"It's great now when you come off the water, you've got somewhere to go, in bad weather you've got somewhere to keep warm, hot weather you've got somewhere to shelter from the sun, plenty of room to change, socialise, get a cup of coffee and it's all accessible."
The new boathouse and clubhouse has been funded by a number of organisations including Rotary Clubs and charitable Trusts.
Huntingdon swimmer Harriet Lee has claimed silver in the SB9 100m breaststroke at the Paralympics.
The 25-year-old, who has Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, won bronze in the same category in London four years ago.
Lee produced a brilliant swim to record a personal best of 1min 16.87sec in Rio to finish second.
The gold went to Holland's Lisa Kruger who was about a second ahead.

A new £2.4m cancer centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon has welcomed its first patients this week.
The facility includes private consulting rooms and a support centre.
The aim is to bring together all cancer services at the hospital by next year.
The new centre looks incredible. There’s so much room for patients, their loved ones and staff to interact calmly and privately.
To have a facility like this on your doorstep when you’ve got cancer, rather than having to travel for hours, is such a comfort.
I know this will make a huge difference to the people of Huntingdon.
