The Sun has partnered with NHS Charities Together and Channel 4 to televise the annual awards for the first time, elevating the celebration of those who have helped us through one of the most difficult years in living history.
The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards were set up in 2017 to celebrate and thank the NHS and healthcare heroes, key workers and ordinary people who care for us.
With a special interview with Davina McCall in The Sun today, the Who Cares Wins awards re-launch accepting new nominations. To nominate your healthcare hero please go to thesun.co.uk/whocareswins
Davina McCall said: “It is a total privilege to be presenting The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards.
“We all owe so much to the incredible people who work tirelessly to care for us, it will be an honour to meet the winners and nominees and hear their amazing stories.”
Victoria Newton, editor-in-chief of The Sun said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Davina and Thames TV on board for The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards this year.
“Davina’s warmth, humour, and relatability have made her one of the nation’s most loved television presenters, and make her perfect for the host to help celebrate our brilliant healthcare heroes.
“Along with Thames’ fantastic experience, it’s going to be a great night.”
Amelia Brown, MD, Thames, said: “We’re proud to bring this amazing awards ceremony to TV screens. It will be an evening of celebration for our healthcare heroes.”
The awards are held in conjunction with NHS Charities Together. Last year generous Sun readers raised over £1million for the charity in order to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
PM Boris Johnson was at the last awards in 2019 to honour two porters who saved baby Logan Clifford when he stopped breathing.
He said: “Through my own battle with Covid, I saw first-hand quite how brilliant our NHS is.
“I can’t wait to meet all of the worthy winners in person, hear their stories, and give them my very personal thanks.”
“You can show your appreciation for them through continuing your support for NHS Charities Together.”
We will be giving out an award in memory of our late Health Editor Christina Newbury
