Everyday heroes are all around us - those that selflessly help their friends, neighbours and families or lend a hand within their local communities - and these acts of kindness were as prevalent as ever over this past year.
During the pandemic, we asked people around the world to nominate a hero in their own life. To celebrate their selfless contributions, we have published our first ever 'Unsung Heroes' book that showcases 25 inspiring individuals and commemorates their acts of selflessness during a difficult period in our lives, with all profits going to our two chosen charities: Maggie's and Unity Unlimited.
The hero with the most outstanding story - our Leading hero - will also be gifted a StoryTerrace biography package (worth £4,000) to capture their heroism forever in a professionally written book.
