Each year, ITV News regions across the UK search for a local Fundraiser of the Year as part of the national Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.

Here in the Channel Islands, four finalists have now been selected form the many nominations we received.

One of those is Pete Wright, who takes on various endurance challenges to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey.

After completing an ultra marathon in the arctic, running the width of England and length of Wales, cycling for 24 hours, rowing 60 kilometres, and pulling a one tonne car the length of a marathon, he has raised around £20,000. But he says he hopes being nominated for a Pride of Britain Award will also ultimately help the charity.
