"Do you know someone who gives a lot to the local community and happens to be over 65? We're teaming up with The Telegraph and Churchill Retirement Living to find someone who puts themselves out for others. The awards are being judged at the end of next week and will honour leading figures from all walks of life (politics, fashion, business, sport etc) who are over 65. Winners will have their photos taken by top British photographers David Bailey or Terry O’Neill. We're delighted to be collecting nominations for the local hero category.
If you know of a local 'unsung hero' then please do tell us what makes them deserving of a nomination:
I wouldn't expect time off work - pet bereavement
Mother staring back at me - realise you're getting older
Names I've not heard - don't know 90% of celebs
