Nominate your Everyday Hero for a chance for them to win £1,000 and a brand new phone

We’re on the hunt for everyday heroes.

We want to reward the best this country’s got – and we need your help to find them.

You might know a teacher, bus driver, or store owner who’s worked around the clock to help others. Or you might know a neighbour who’s been delivering essentials to those who are shielding. Maybe you helped a friend celebrate despite their exams being cancelled, or threw a surprise birthday or wedding party online.

You might know a small business who’s found new ways to keep trading – from the kitchen table, while home schooling, connecting across the country or even around the world. Maybe you run a business yourself, and you’ve changed the products you offer, started making PPE or simply found new ways to support your team, and the country, through the pandemic.

The awards are now open for entry, just complete the short entry form below before midnight on 5th July:

Five winners will be chosen from a selection of the best entries by a panel including independent judge Gavin Ellis, Director of the charity Hubbub, and three judges from O2: Allie Lawson, Head of SMB Brand & Marcomms; Nicola Green, Corporate Affairs Director; and Tracey Herald, Head of Partnerships and Social Impact. The panel will be looking for original stories supported by photographs and videos.

The winners will be announced on Monday 27th July with each winner receiving £1000 cash prize plus a brand new handset to keep them connected.
