VE Poem: Our Heroes – as performed on BBC’s The One Show

Actor Christopher Eccleston performed this poem called Our Heroes. He was a guest on the show and invited to read this special tribute to NHS workers. 

It was written by Matt Kelly who it is understood to be a fellow Salford lad.  He was inspired to write it after hearing about the challenges his partner faced as she worked as a district nurse.
