Pride of Britain 2022 Filming - ITV News

I have covered a few stories this year about the Pride of Britain Awards for ITV News.

This one was at Epsom racecourse and I filmed it last month in the rain with reporter Joe Coshan.

ITV Meridian East's latest nominee for the Pride of Britain Regional Fundraiser of the Year award was a hospice worker from Ashford in Kent.

Gary Kirton has spent more than half of his life raising money for great causes. He's raised more than £300,000 over the last thirty years by organising everything from bingo nights to sports dinners.

He has been travelling across the UK, to walk around 41 racecourses. Gary's 41 race course challenge has already topped £10,000 for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust - named after the jockey who won the Grand National 41 years ago whilst he was recovering from the disease.

Sadly despite his valiant efforts Gary did not win the award which was announced today.

You can see the report below and read the full report on ITV's website here.
