Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards 2018 - Meet the Calendar region finalists

The regional 'fundraiser' finalists for the Calendar North and South regions have all achieved great things in their respective communities, raising money for causes which mean a great deal to them and in many cases, their families too.

This week we're featuring four people from each of the Calendar regions. One from each region will be announced tomorrow as the person who'll represent ITV Yorkshire at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards themselves, held in London at the end of the month.

There they will meet other finalists from the ITV regions and one of them will be announced as national winner on the night.

The judging panel this year was our weather forecaster Jon Mitchell and the Emmerdale actress Lesley Dunlop, who plays Brenda Walker.
