Pride of Britain is such an incredible event - and I have always felt so humbled to be part of it.  It is a night that makes you realise just how brave and selfless people of this country can be.  It truly is an event that Britain can be extraordinarily proud of.

Right now, there are people going about their everyday lives in towns and villages all over the country, who have no idea that in a few months, they will be the stars of the most amazing night of the year.

People sometimes ask, 'What is a hero?'  Well, it's these people who are the true heroes.  They are totally selfless and think of others first.

Good deeds, selfless acts and inspirational stories all too often go unseen and it is incredibly humbling to see the sheer determination and incredible journeys of these heroes.

Every day, in communities across the length and breadth of our land, men and women, young and old are showing extraordinary courage and character to achieve things that would leave even our greatest Olympians looking on in awe.

Thousands of ordinary people right across Britain do extraordinary things every day, in so many ways, to help each other in their local communities.  Starting from today, we all have the opportunity to make sure these local heroes have their actions and dedication recognised. 

At the age of 91, you'd excuse Jean for slowing down a bit.  But there's just no stopping this fundraising legend known universally as "The Bee Lady".

 

Fed up with dull school dinners, Martha Payne decided to showcase them in a daily blog - with astonishing results.
