Pride of Britain: the winners!

All this week we've been meeting the nominees for the ITV Pride of Britain Fundraiser of the Year.

We've been celebrating people in our region who go the extra mile to help others - and they have all been fantastic contenders.

Our judges have confirmed the winners from the east and west of the region. A helping hand from 'Strictly' judge Craig Revel Horwood...


Animal rescuer nominated for Pride of Britain award

Our latest Pride of Britain nominee for the South East is an animal lover who, in the last three years, has reunited more than four thousand lost or injured pets with their owners. She's on call 24-hours a day and says she spends every penny she has paying for vet bills to help sick animals. Please be warned - some might find the images in Abigail Bracken's report distressing.

Pride of Britain nominee hopes to make people smile

Our latest Pride of Britain nominee has raised nearly 80-thousand pounds for charity. She's organised festivals, jamborees, abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower and walked on hot coals. All that - and she's just 17 years old. Jess Ridge who lives near Portsmouth, started her campaign to help others when she was just 8 years old and, as she told Mary Stanley, all she wants to do is make people smile.
