DON’T miss The Northern Echo on Wednesday, June 10, for a special supplement paying tribute to all those who have done so much for the region throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

The We Salute You pull-out contains scores of nominations provided by readers over recent weeks, plus photos of the many brilliant tributes to key workers across the North-East and North Yorkshire.

Hannah Chapman, editor of The Northern Echo, said: “Wednesday’s supplement is going to be a real souvenir edition, honouring those who have gone above and beyond during this difficult time.

“Thank-you to all the advertisers who have supported this project, in particular our main sponsors Durham County Council – and to all those who sent in their nominations.

“From bus drivers, and bakers to funeral directors and care workers, to our amazing NHS staff, their stories demonstrate the very best of our region.”
