They don't do it for recognition, glory, or financial gain, but because it's the right thing to do. Today (June 11), a host of these quiet heroes, have been recognised for their hard work and unshakeable determination.

More than 40 people across Greater Manchester have been named on 2021's Queen's Birthday Honours list. One of these, 60-year-old Shirley Southworth, has dedicated her life to helping the underprivileged and vulnerable people around her in Wigan - refusing to give up on any lost soul.
