22 year old Alex Staniforth has overcome anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, eating disorders, bullying, epilepsy and stammering to raise over £85,000 for charity. This year he was shortlisted from thousands of people in the Pride of Britain ITV regional Fundraiser of the Year category after winning the Granada region award.
The nominations are now officially open for our Pride of Britain Awards in partnership with TSB. We are now in our 19th year and we cannot wait to read your amazing stories about incredible people who have affected your life across the country. We caught up with our host Carol Vorderman to get her thoughts on what the Pride of Britain means to her.
