Daily Mirror Pride of Britain regional fundraiser winners announced

The Daily Mirror Pride of Britain ITV regional fundraisers have been chosen to represent Calendar at the glittering event in London later this month.

Winners were chosen from our two programmes which represent the North and South areas of our coverage. "The Mad Man With The Pram" John Burkhill from Sheffield was awarded the "South" gong, while teacher Sam Boatwright from Skipton was given the "North" award.

Each of the programmes ran films on public-nominated fundraisers last week, and judges Jon Mitchell and Emmerdale's Mark Charnock had the unenviable task of choosing who would go to the awards ceremony on behalf of ITV Yorkshire.

They will join fundraiser winners from all the ITV regional news programmes, with the national winner announced on the night of the ceremony. Good luck to all of them.

Here is John Burkhill's winning entry:
