Pride of Britain finalist: 'I'm just a wee guy from Dumfries'

Michael Pattie, the fundraiser from Dumfries who was ITV Border's Pride of Britain winner, has been speaking about the night of the awards ceremony.

He rubbed shoulders with celebrities like Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at the event, which celebrates Britain's most selfless fundraisers:

I've always said I'm just a wee guy from a little town in south west Scotland.

To be down in London in the big city at a huge event was very surreal but incredibly enjoyable, and we had a great time."

– Michael Pattie

Michael Pattie has raised more than £300,000 for meningitis research charities.
