Tell us about GB’s spe­cial peo­ple

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
