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.

POB 2018 Calendar finalist - Hayley Hodson

  • Click above to see Hayley's story

Hayley Hodson from Louth in Lincolnshire has been raising money for Sheffield Children's Hospital and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Hayley's daughter Amelia fought and beat Leukaemia after a three-year battle. But she died earlier this year in the most tragic of circumstances - hit by a wheel which had come loose from a passing car.

Hayley wants to make sure Amelia's name lives on - and since her death almost £30,000 has been raised for medics who came to help.
