Tell us about GB’s special people
IN OCTOBER, I have the great pleasure of hosting the Daily Mirror’s 16th annual Pride of Britain Awards, sponsored by Lidl, and shown on ITV.
As your readers may know, it is an incredibly inspiring occasion, where HRH Prince Charles and the Prime Minister, David Cameron, join our top showbusiness and sports stars to pay tribute to the nation’s unsung heroes.
For me, it’s the only TV awards show that really matters because the winners are real heroes who put the ‘great’ into Britain. It’s an honour to present the awards each year and meet such extraordinary, courageous and awe-inspiring people.
So if you know somebody who deserves to have their achievements recognised with a coveted Pride of Britain award, I urge you to nominate them.
Perhaps it’s someone who works tirelessly to improve their community, a dedicated charity fundraiser or campaigner.
Or a courageous child or adult, an exemplary teacher or care worker.
Maybe it’s a member of our emergency services or armed forces who has put themselves at risk for others.
Most importantly, the person you nominate doesn’t need to have had public recognition for what they have done – if you think they have done something special, please nominate them. It’s as simple as that.
Visit www.prideofbritain.com, pick up a nomination form from a Lidl store, or send details to Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards, PO Box 4014, London, E14 5BF.
Please act quickly because nominations must be received by midnight on Friday, August 15 to be considered by our panel of judges.
I look forward to meeting the remarkable winners at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards 2014 at the Grosvenor House in London’s Park Lane in October.
