Ann Panks, 74, and husband Terry, 76, have opened their home to over 1,000 desperate, homeless young men. The pair from Wythenshawe converted an old police station into a family home taking up to 10 people, referred by social services, charitable organisations or by the probation service.
They've been awarded the Pride of Britain Local Hero award. Click the video to see the work they do. The ceremony will be shown on ITV1 at 8pm tonight.
