WHO could fail to be inspired by the incredible recipients of The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards?
At a time when the world seems filled with bad news, it is heart-warming to know there are such brilliant, selfless people whose heroic actions are enough to restore anyone’s faith in human nature.
4The heart-warming Who Cares Wins awards – which featured celebs including Anthony Joshua and Susanna Reid – were enough to restore anyone’s faith in human nature4So many selfless heroes were celebrated at the awards, sponsored by The National LotteryThis year’s uplifting event, televised earlier tonight, highlighted once again the remarkable stories of courage, determination and goodness shown by so many doctors, nurses and volunteers, often going far beyond the call of duty.
No wonder our star-studded audience was in awe of the winners.
They included medics who risked their own lives to save others in Ukraine; the nurse pioneering “street clinics” for gang-affected youngsters; the doctor using his own trauma to help those with mental health issues; and the unsung young hero who dedicated the last weeks of his life to fundraising for a six-year-old fellow cancer sufferer.
Celebrities marvelled at how 12-year-old carer Jayden Sorhaindo saved her mum’s life, then they wept in admiration at her moving acceptance speech.
Our much-missed columnist Dame Deborah James, who won her own posthumous prize, was a passionate supporter of our Who Cares Wins awards.
She, like us, would have been so proud of our latest heroes.

4Most young people aspire to own their own homes – so the Tories have to stop pandering to NIMBYsCredit: AlamyWHAT has the Conservative Party got to offer the voters of tomorrow if not a fair chance to be the best that they can be, regardless of background, and to be rewarded for hard work and enterprise?
If they are true to their traditional ideals the Tories have to be the party of aspiration.
And top of the wish list for most young people is the desire to own their own home.
That is why Tory MPs pandering to NIMBY constituents, for fear their votes will go to the Lib Dems, block housing developments at their peril.
To do so would not only destroy the dreams of millions of future voters — it would risk dooming their party in the rest of the country to defeat.
Off the rails
4Britain cannot afford the ransom that rail union boss Mick Lynch is demandingCredit: ReutersIT’S cruel folly for rail workers to inflict further misery on the public in order to chase inflation-busting pay rises while refusing to consider changing outdated working practices.
Britain simply cannot afford the ransom Mick Lynch and his union wreckers demand.
Even if it could, that would only stoke inflation, pushing prices continuously beyond the reach of spiralling pay rises.
The unions don’t care. They are waging a political war and see the public as nothing more than cannon fodder.
