Who will you remember most for life under lockdown? Beyond those you’re cooped up with – the close family, friends or flatmates who, let’s face it, will take some forgetting – there are other people who are resonating with communities across the country. These are the new stars of their locality, who’ve become known for uplifting the spirits of those around them with their acts of kindness, selflessness, or just downright good fun – and this is your chance to share their achievements and celebrate them with the rest of the world.
This is your chance to nominate and to vote, and make sure your own personal hero of the hour is recognized by the rest of the nation – whether it’s for an amazing DIY project, your community hero, a mouthwatering bake, an impressive new skill or an awesome crafty creation.
You might want to draw attention to the pub landlord whose webinar teaches the village to make his famous burger. The local farmer donating wheat to a village to make bread. The drag queens delivering fine dining to your door, or the corner shop that’s suddenly the center of the known earth. You might want to say thank you to the local who’s been busy giving their town free art classes.
Or it could also be the person who’s responsible for the most impressive DIY project shared on your neighborhood Whatsapp group, an outstanding piece of artwork, sewing, pottery or even origami that you’ve seen on Facebook, the most innovative way to celebrate a birthday, someone with a hidden talent as a quizmaster and bakes, bakes and more bakes (even with a national flour shortage).
Whoever you want to nominate and wherever they are, one thing unites them, and that’s their ability to inspire and uplift during the lockdown.
The Daily Telegraph will then create shortlists and ask you, their readers, to vote for your favorite.
The winners will be announced two weeks later of the deadline which is on May 7, 2020. Nominate your lockdown hero now and win the award!
Celebrate your personal heroes of lockdown with a nomination, be that a brilliant baker or an amazing act of kindness from a neighbor.
