Beyond the Storm - The People’s Vote

This is your chance to vote for the People’s Choice! Below are the shortlisted six poems from the 2381 entries we received. Andrew McMillan has chosen an overall winner but we are keeping his decision secret until you’ve given your opinion. They have been read for us by the wonderful BBC Casualty actors Olivia D’Lima, Kirsty Mitchell and Gabriella Leon and superb upcoming actors from ALRA North; Jacob Butler, Rhiannon Clements and Noah Olaoye.

Watch them all, then please vote for your favourite one, before midnight on 7th August. And, please donate to help us reach our target of £10,000 (only £2,700 to go as voting opens).
