The initiative, launched last year, aims to find a community hero who goes above and beyond to help others or has achieved something remarkable.

Twelve regional finalists will be selected, and one overall winner will win a prize for themselves and a charity of their choice.

Last year’s overall winner, Emma Pears, set up a charity called SELFA to ensure services for disadvantaged, vulnerable and disabled children would not suffer when local statutory provision was due to be cut.

She said: “It feels like each of us in the room are the people who do the “small things” every day of our lives.
