Community Heroes Stories

 
Liverpool ONE wants to shine a light on the often unseen Community Heroes and ask them to help us sparkle up Christmas! It’s been an unusual and challenging year, but the community spirit has been shining brighter than ever, and the Community Hero stories we received are yet another proof of the big hearts of the people of Liverpool.

Discover their heart-warming stories below!
