Some of the most inspiring people in our communities will rub shoulder with celebrities tonight at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards. They celebrate all that's best about our nation and we were tasked with finding the West Country's fundraiser of the year.
Our judges chose Ben Smith from Portishead - who managed to run 401 marathons in 401 days and has raised more than a quarter of a million pounds for charity at the same time and Naomi Thomas who runs the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation charity which organises and pays for weddings for couples with serious illnesses.
