Local hero competition

TV Chef Eric Lanlard designing and preparing a cake

Master Patissier rises to the occasion

Eric Lanlard, Master Patissier and star of Channel 4’s Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard, will be choosing one winner to be the Silver Spoon Local Hero 2011.

Macmillan has teamed up with Silver Spoon, official Sugar Partner for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, to launch the Silver Spoon Local Hero Awards. 

They’re looking for you to nominate people all over the country that have made a special difference in your life in any way. The winner will be appointed the title of Silver Spoon’s National Hero, and will receive a cake chosen by you and baked by Eric Lanlard himself, plus the person who nominated them will receive a Silver Spoon hamper worth £75.

There are twelve more hampers full of baking goodies up for grabs too, awarded to the person who enters the best local hero story from each region all over the country. Perfect for baking your local hero a cake.

Your local hero could be anyone; a local youth worker, a committed nurse, a carer who goes that extra mile or even a neighbour who is always willing to lend a hand. Anyone who you think is a hero in your local community.

Want a slice of the action?

Silver Spoon's Local Hero competition closed on Wednesday 31 August. The winners will be announced soon.
