Charity walk organiser nominated for Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Fundraiser of the Year Award

West nominee

Our next nominee for the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Award Fundraiser of the Year Award is Rose Dalton.

The 72-year-old from Ascot has organised Relay for Life, a 24 hour sponsored walk in aid of Cancer Research UK, for the past 11 years.

The event has raised more than £1 million for the charity, but this year Rose herself was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Her illness has meant she's had to now step down from the job she's dedicated so many years of her life to.
