IT is with great pleasure that I will be hosting the tenth annual Pride of Britain Awards on ITV1 in October.

As your readers may know, it is an incredibly uplifting occasion where HRH Prince Charles and the Prime Minister join a star-studded audience to honour the nation's unsung heroes.

IT is with great pleasure that I will be hosting the tenth annual Pride of Britain Awards on ITV1 in October.

As your readers may know, it is an incredibly uplifting occasion where HRH Prince Charles and the Prime Minister join a star-studded audience to honour the nation's unsung heroes.

For me, it is the only awards show on TV that really matters because the winners are real people who could not be more deserving. It is a chance for us to celebrate Britain at its best and I am not surprised it has become the biggest national event of its kind.

Over the past decade, like many millions of viewers, I have been stunned, moved and inspired by what our winners have done.

Yet I know there are many more heroes and heroines whose achievements go unrecognised. And that's why I am appealing to your readers to tell us about them.

We want to hear about those individuals who make the world a better place - from courageous children and adults, people who improve their neighbourhoods, tireless care-workers, teachers, campaigners, charity fundraisers, to members of the emergency services who put their lives at risk for others.

You can nominate by email:nominate@prideofbritain.com, online at www.prideofbritain.com or by writing to Pride of Britain Awards, PO Box 4014, London, E14 5BF

Or you can pick up a form, fill it in and post it in the Pride of Britain boxes at your local Co-operative food store or travel, bank or pharmacy branch. Nominations must be received by Friday August 1 to be considered by our panel of judges.

I know Pride of Britain 2008 will be another memorable night. But we need your readers help to make it so.
