- WATCH: Juliette Fletcher meets west nominee Andrew Baker
Three months ago, we began our search for the ITV Meridian Fundraiser of the Year as part of the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.
Hundreds of you nominated wonderful fundraisers from your communities. And now we can reveal the first of our finalists. The winner will represent our region at the star-studded ceremony in London next month.
Andrew Baker is an amazing young man, who, despite suffering from a brain injury since birth, spends his time raising money for charities in Oxfordshire.
His condition means he faces daily challenges but he says his motivation drives him on and to date he's raised around £175,000 for good causes.
