Make a Difference in poetry

As part of the Make a Difference campaign, local BBC radio stations have commissioned poets to create a poem inspired by people who are "making a difference" to the lives of those in need.

And poem for England titled “Lockdown Lines” has been written by poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan. The poem celebrates thousands of "tiny local kindnesses".
