A GLASGOW Royal Infirmary nurse who worked through the coronavirus pandemic has been called a superhero – in her seven-year-old’s homework poem.

Gillian Beck, from Maryhill, received the honour in her son Sonny’s poem.

Sonny, who attends Dunard primary in Maryhill, said: “We are doing our school work at home and my teacher said we should write a poem. It was to be about a key worker so I chose my mum because she’s a nurse.

“She’s been working really hard and that gave me the idea. It made her really happy – I think she’s the best!”

Gillian has been a nurse for over 20 years and works in a care for the elderly ward at the Royal.

She said: “It’s been a difficult time for everyone, so Sonny’s poem did really mean a lot. He’s only seven, but does have a good understanding of what’s been going on.”

Glasgow Times:

Nurses are superhoeros, they just don’t have capes

Unwell people eating grapes

Running about here and there

Spending all the time trying to care

Even they always run

Superhero of the day goes to my mum
