Fraser McIntyre, The Biscuit Baron director, said: “We wanted to celebrate this time by giving something back to the unsung heroes who have shed some light on a generally gloomy time in many people’s lives.

“We’re asking the public to submit their stories by the September 1 and the winning entries will receive a year’s supply of biscuit boxes from around the world. Each box will contain up to eight full packs of biscuits from a different country, every month for 12 months.

"It’s the perfect pick-me-up with your cuppa. Runners up will also receive a biscuit prize, with all applicants being notified in the first week of September.”

People can nominate their Covid Champ at the website and submit their story and any other supporting material such as photos or videos.
