ITV News Central is on the lookout for fantastic fundraisers as we launch our search for the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards Fundraiser of the Year for 2016.

We want to hear from you if you know an individual who's aged 16 or over who's done an inspirational job raising funds for a good cause.

Maybe they work tirelessly to fundraise of perhaps they've overcome personal difficulties to help others by fundraising.

Last year's winner in the East Midlands was Sahara Fleetwood-Beresford from Derbyshire, who found a novel way of raising money for a cause close to her heart.

She persuaded fellow sufferers of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis disease to take a selfie of their bellies, and post it onto her website called "Get Your Belly Out" - and raised thousands of pounds for Crohn's and Colitis UK in the process.

Last year's winner in the West Midlands was Samrick Singh, who has raised thousands for Delete Blood Cancer and Focus Leukaemia.

Diagnosed with Leukaemia aged just 18, Samrick now aims to get as many black and Asian people on the stem cell register as he can so they can have the best chance of treating someone seriously ill.
