Hidden Heroes with WWF UK!

Who is this for?

Do you know someone who cares passionately about the future of our planet and who’s working hard for a greener, more sustainable future? Or think that might be you? Then let WWF UK know!


They’ve launched a nationwide search supported by players of  People’s Postcode Lottery to find those who go above and beyond to make a positive difference for our planet. Hidden Heroes could be anywhere – they might be running around the office switching off monitors, hiding up on rooftops installing solar panels, or busy creating posters and raising money for sustainable causes at their school.

These people are out there making a difference and inspiring others to do the same – and we think they should be celebrated! So whether you know a Community Champion, a Young Superstar (Under 25s), or a Workplace Wonder, nominate them today so they can get the recognition they deserve! Nominate your Hidden Hero!

 

Here’s who’s helping


Comedian and WWF-UK ambassador Alistair McGowan is supporting the Community Champions category: “Green projects are uniting communities across Great Britain and bringing people together to share their passion for nature. We need everyone to do their bit and raise awareness of the environmental challenges we all face at home and abroad. I’m really pleased to be able to recognise some of the truly inspiring people who are leading the way – they really are our planet’s heroes!”

 

Ex-England footballer and WWF-UK ambassador Graeme Le Saux is heading up the Workplace Wonders category: “Making sustainable choices is not just something people do at home or in their community. There are people out there who are striving to make a difference in their workplace and to inspire those they work with, their staff and customers to be greener too. Help us find the workplace heroes who are going above and beyond their day job to protect our planet!”

 

And YouTube star Lex Croucher is calling for entries to the Young Superstars category: “As a young person who cares deeply about our planet, I’m really excited to be spreading the word about Hidden Heroes. Young people have such a crucial role to play in the protection of our planet, I think we’ve grown up with a really good understanding and awareness of green issues and are able to really lead the way in creating a more sustainable future. I can’t wait to hear all the exciting things this planet’s young superstars are getting up to!”

 

This year’s competition is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery which is a charity lottery where players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for charities and good causes local to them. Find out more about them here.

 

Hidden Heroes is open for nominations until Monday 1st December 2014. For more information please go to
