Francis introduces Sally to his favourite Working Class Hero – his mum, Ellen.
A mother of 5, who left school in grade 4 and worked her entire life whilst raising her family and battling debilitating bouts of mental illness, Ellen’s story of resilience and endurance is remarkable.
Francis thinks she’s tops. We reckon after you hear her story, you will too.
