Do you know an inspiring individual in the community that has gone above and beyond to help others during this difficult time?
Middlesbrough Mela want to highlight members of our community that have responded and provided selfless act to help others or their community.
We would like to hear about community heroes whose acts of kindness have really made a difference to those around them and have not yet been recognised for it.
Chosen heroes will then be captured by award winning Portrait of Britain 2020 photographer Joanne Coates and be part of a new outdoor exhibition this summer.
We will soon be releasing details of how you can nominate some one you know right here!
