Film actors Winston Ellis and Andy Beckwith, who have starred in everything from the Pirates of the Caribbean to Game of Thrones, will host the awards.

Mr Ellis said he was proud to be involved, adding: "I was lucky enough to be nominated in 2016 for their lifetime achievement award.

"Their research is cutting edge and vital in finding a vaccine for secondary spread breast cancer, so I'm happy to help where I can."

Kelly Gibson, corporate partnership manager, said: “There are people who selflessly help others in their community or workplace every single day, they don’t do it for recognition or thanks but would it be nice if they could be recognised, if they were shown how appreciated they are."

All shortlisted nominees will receive a free ticket to the awards ceremony in Reading on October 24. Nominate via by August 30.
