    Real heroes NOT all superheroes wear capes, many just walk among us unnoticed as we go about our lives. We never know who they are until we need their help — and often they don’t even realise they are heroes. Darren Fletcher 2 The Sun’s annual Who Cares Wins awards celebrates those people who go above and beyond to make our lives better That’s the reason for The Sun’s annual Who Cares Wins awards, so that we can celebrate those people who go above and beyond to make our lives better. This year, the tough times the world has endured with coronavirus have only spurred them on to fight back harder. Take mechanic Barney Jones, who selflessly had only one day off in nine months to ensure ambulances were kept on the road during the pandemic. Or the fabulous scientists who so quickly created the cheap, effective Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid vaccine that is already estimated to have saved thousands upon thousands of lives. Our Christina Newbury Award for the Jabs Army of fantastic vaccine volunteers means that many of...
    DR Waheed Arian scored a dream meeting with his footie idol when David Beckham presented him with the Best Doctor award at The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards. The inspirational medic, who picked up the gong on a star-studded night for inspirational heros in London last week, has supported Man Utd since arriving in the UK as an Afghan refugee 21 years ago. 14David Beckham presented Dr Waheed Arian with the Best Doctor awardCredit: Arthur Edwards / The Sun And he could not contain his delight at picking up the gong from the Red Devils legend. Waheed, 36, from Chester, said: “To have David Beckham present this award to me . . . When I came here as a 15-year-old refugee, seeing David playing was amazing. “That’s why I became a Man Utd fan, because of Sir Alex and David — that’s who I grew up with.” When he arrived from war-torn Afghanistan on his own as a teenager, Waheed had just £80 and the dream of becoming a doctor. He spent his childhood being shelled by Russian forces before fleeing to Pakistan, where...
    COURAGEOUS Carmela Chillery-Watson melted the nation’s hearts tonight — along with new best pals Prince William and David Beckham.

And Carmela had the awards audience in tears as she left her wheelchair behind and walked onstage using crutches to receive the accolade. She said: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that nominated me but I would like to give this award to other people for what they’ve done too. Thank you so much.” Earlier, Carmela was praised by Prince William. Wills, 39, kneeled down next to her wheelchair and said: “You should feel very good about what you have done.” He then pointed to the lights on Carmela’s...
    HOSTING of The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards is a special moment to celebrate the healthcare heroes who have done so much in the last two years. Obviously it’s important to celebrate these people every year but this year more than ever. 4Host Davina has praised the healthcare heroesCredit: Splash 4The winners of the awards will be revealed later this eveningCredit: AFP We’ve all been humbled by the actions of our healthcare heroes, over the past 18 months, and these are the things that they all just do without even thinking selflessly and they do all the time. I think until now their behaviour or their actions have never really come to light like they have recently, and that’s why tonight is so important.  I think we really appreciate our healthcare heroes now more than ever. The nominees, be they medical professionals or ordinary citizens, inspire everybody to be a better citizen. It makes us think what can we do to make our communities better, safer, happier, healthier. What’s so nice is that we will always have a...
    BORIS Johnson told the mum of a hero lad nominated for a Sun bravery award of his own terror — when one of his children fell into a swimming pool. The PM congratulated brave Lucas Palmer, eight, after he saved his brother from a fast-flowing river. 4Mum Kate Palmer and the kids meet the PM ahead of the Sun's Who Cares Wins award show 4Lucas Palmer, eight, saved his brother Louis-Arthur from a fast-flowing river And he shared his own chilling story with Lucas’ proud mother Kate, 31. She said later: “He told me it was among the scariest moments of his life.  “He said it was many years ago when one of his children was small.” The PM was full of praise for Lucas at The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards, telling him: “What an honour it is to meet you.

    IT really wasn’t helpful at all. On the day of The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards, I, like much of the rest of the world, was bombarded with pictures of A-list ’slebs at the Met Gala in New York striding on to the red carpet like peacocks. It was enough to make even the most positive person tremble and want to fade into obscurity. 4Venturing back onto the red carpet was worth it for the Who Cares Wins awardsCredit: Splash As I prepared myself for the evening’s glitzy event celebrating health heroes, it certainly fortified the pressure I felt under — the anxiety that already plagued me to look divine, starry and like an on-top-of-it-all celebrity. It had been more than ten years since I’d last ventured out on to the red carpet. If withdrawal from the crazy world of fame was an Olympic sport, I would win gold. My apparent notoriety has not always sat very easy with me. It’s always been an internal battle that has yo-yoed between who I really am and who others think I am....

The Duke of Cambridge described winners Deena Evans and Mick Hipgrave as 'truly heroic'. 4Prince William hailed the two paramedics who put their life on the lineCredit: Getty 4Deena Evans and Mick Hipgrave won the 999 hero awardCredit: Paul Tonge The brave paramedics almost died when they were attacked and stabbed by an assailant brandishing eight-inch long knives as they answered what they thought was a regular 999 call. William, who answered emergencies himself as an air ambulance pilot, told a captivated audience at The Sun awards that 999 responders "must face their deepest fears". He described how heroes such as Deena and Mick must "find the most astonishing level of courage to overcome the obstacles in front of them". Presenting the award, he said: "Every day our emergency services deal with high-pressured, challenging situations. "When most of us would, quite naturally, turn away and seek safety, our emergency responders rise to the occasion - running straight...
