Time to nominate your local hero

The search is on to find Scotland’s real heroes in the community.

STV is searching for Scotland’s most deserving community heroes for their second series of RBS – Finding Scotland’s Real Heroes.

The new series is appealing for local people to nominate friends, family or local groups who have dedicated their time and effort to helping others.

Last year, the Journal and Gazette area offered up a local hero in the name of Lilias Sneddon.

A community youth worker at St Andrews Church in Bo’ness, Lilias said she was ‘humbled’ to have featured in the ‘‘community champion of the year’’ category.

She made it through to the final three.
