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 the Daily Record would like to invite everyone in Scotland to nominate their hero, this could be single act of bravery, an individual who has continually went the extra-mile or an inspirational long-lasting battle against the odds.

Nominations close Midnight Sunday 19th March, 2017.
