My Everyday Hero is…

Everyday heroes have lifted spirits around the world during lockdown. We asked the kids from our latest campaign to tell us who their heroes are through words and pictures.

From delivery people to schoolteachers, everyday heroes come in so many forms, and exist all around the world! Their time and energy have made each day a little brighter and our wonderful cast have explained what that has meant to them. They’ve even channelled their inner artists and drawn some illustrations. Keep reading to see what they have to say about their everyday heroes and check out their cool artwork!
