It's the toughest decision HiQ will ever have to make, and with just two weeks to go before closing date, the fast fit network is urging people to make it even tougher.

The HiQ Hero campaign was launched in April to find some of Britain's most deserving community heroes and while the company has been humbled by the quality of nominations entered, there is still time for others to take part.

HiQ teamed up with Olympic legend Sally Gunnell to launch a national appeal to find unsung local community members up and down the UK, from volunteers and care workers to teachers and loving members of the family.

The campaign, which has now been shortlisted for a Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide award, is closing on September 30 but is still open for North West residents to get in touch and nominate.

The grand finale will take place at Birmingham's Custard Factory this November where an overall winner will be chosen from the ten regional finalists, who will be shortlisted in October.

The winner will receive £5,000 for their community and £500 for themselves while the regional winners will each receive a cheque for £250.

HiQ's marketing manager Geraldine McGovern said: "This has been a huge campaign for us and one that will be extremely hard to measure.

"The nominees' stories are inspirational and extremely humbling. It has confirmed above all that there are so many local heroes out there that work for their own self gratification rather than the appreciation of society.

"We don't have an easy task ahead of us but we are very much looking forward to congratulating the finalists in all their efforts and announcing the overall winner."
