Who is your own local hero?

NORTHUMBERLAND residents are being urged to put forward their local heroes for a national television programme.

A brand new ITV 1 show will be highlighting inspirational people who have done some amazing things such as setting up a charity, fund-raising for a good cause despite their own difficulties and performing an act of great bravery.

Other examples producers are looking for include those who work tirelessly to improve their community, make major sacrifices to help others and volunteer to run events and activities for social groups.

To enter someone, send a brief description about why they deserve to be featured in the programme along with your name, daytime telephone number and nearest major UK city to Hero Applications, 12 Yard Productions, 131-151 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 5BB.

Alternatively, these details can be e-mailed to hero@12yard.com

The producers would like those making nominations not to tell the person being put forward as they would like them to be surprised.

The closing date is July 11 – all nominees must be aged 18 and over.
