Dear Editor, In October I have the great pleasure in hosting the 11th annual Pride of Britain Awards, sponsored by The Co-operative, on ITV1.
As your readers may know, it is an incredibly inspiring occasion where HRH Prince Charles and the Prime Minister join a star-studded audience to honour the nation’s unsung heroes.
For me, it’s the only TV awards show that really matters because the winners make our country a better place for all.
In these difficult times I believe it’s more important than ever to celebrate the best of Britain.
But we need your help to find the people who put the Great into Britain so we can give them the recognition they deserve.
Do you know of an unsung hero or heroine? Perhaps it’s someone who has worked tirelessly to improve your community, a dedicated charity fundraiser or campaigner? Or a courageous child or adult, an exemplary teacher or careworker. Or a member of the armed forces or emergency services who put their lives as risk for others?
You can nominate your unsung hero for a Price of Britain award by filling in a nomination form and posting it in boxes in Co-operative stores.
Or you can nominate by email: email@example.com, online at www.prideofbritain.com or in writing to Pride of Britain Awards, PO Box 4014, London, E14 5BF.
