THE ‘THANK YOU FROM BOT­TOM OF OUR HEARTS’

Best - - BEST THIS WEEK -

One of the big­gest news sto­ries of the year was that of the 12 Thai boys who were trapped in a cave for 17 days be­fore be­ing res­cued by divers in July. Now, three months on, they’ve been re­united with the Bri­tish men who helped save them. John Volan­then, Ja­son Mallinson, Chris Jewell, Josh Bratch­ley and Con­nor Roe and the children met at the Pride Of Bri­tain Awards last week, where the men were hon­oured with an Out­stand­ing Brav­ery award. The boys were also given a chance to say a more per­sonal thank you on the This Morn­ing sofa. ‘ We would like to thank you from the bot­tom of our hearts for tak­ing the very high risk to save our lives,’ said one of the boys, Eak. ‘ You were strangers and you helped us, but now, you’re part of our fam­i­lies.’
