Our Heroes 2017 honour and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of people throughout Scotland.

Since 2004, Our Heroes has scoured the breadths and depths of Scottish communities in search of their unsung heroes. The people who deserve recognition for their efforts that seemingly go under the radar and shine a light on their stories.

Once again this year, readers of the Daily Record have submitted an impressive number of nominations and our judging panel will select a short-list of three heroes from each category in areas including armed forces, senior, caring, entertainment and sport.

At a glittering awards dinner on Friday 19th May at the Doubletree by Hilton, Glasgow Central hosted by Fred MacAulay, we will reveal the nine winners and the overall Our Hero for 2017.
