A charity founder has made it to the national final of the Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards.
Carole Hughes, who set up Anna’s Hope after her daughter Anna died of a brain tumour in 2006, won the ITV Anglia regional heat on Friday last week.
She will now go on to represent the region in the national final in October.
Carole, from Pilsgate, said: “I am stunned. I’m absolutely delighted for the charity. The fact we are going to get national exposure is great.”
Carole thanked all those who had helped the charity get to where it is today.
“I couldn’t do what I am doing without the help and support of all the people that follow us, and all the people who voted for us,” she said.
Carole said she could see Anna smiling down saying “well done mummy”.
The Daily Mirror Pride of Britain final will be held on October 6.
