Pride of Britain West Country Finalists - Matt Way

All this week we're announcing our nominees for the ITV Fundraiser of the Year in the West Country.

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.

Matt Way has organised the Joe Way Paddle For Life for the past decade in memory of his son. It is one of many fundraising events he is involved in.

Joe Way charity to paddle to Nowhereisland

The Joe Way charity will be paddling out to greet Nowhereisland at 7pm this evening as it arrives in Newquay. The art project will be met by a flotilla at Towan Head and will then be led into Newquay Bay.

The charity will be joined by the Newquay Rowing Club which will be sailing 'The Newquay', a 200-year-old pilot gig.

Proceeds from the Flotilla will go to the Joe Way appeal for local charities. Nowhereisland has been created by Bristol-based arts group Situations for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
