Stephen Western has been unveiled as Wales' 2019 Pride of Britain Fundraiser of the Year.

Stephen started the 'Ten y Fan' challenge after friends Liz and Lee were told their son had a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

The challenge sees participants climb Pen y Fan ten times in 24 hours and now hundred of climbers take part every year.

Along with a team, which includes Liz and Lee, Stephen has gone on to raise over £300,000 for charity.

Watch the moment our reporter Jess Main went to present him with his award.

Former X Factor contestant Lloyd Macey was involved picking Steve as Wales' 2019 winner.

I loved their clip where you could see the enjoyment on other people's faces who have taken part in the activity.

I think he's going to be very shocked to have won but to raise £300,000 in five years is really impressive and yeah I'm really looking forward to seeing their reaction.

Steve was one of four people from Wales shortlisted for the award.
