The Happy List

The Independent on Sunday’s annual Happy List is a collection of 100 inspirational heroes and heroines whose kindness, ingenuity and bravery make Britain a better place to live.

Founded in 2008 as an antidote to the lists that celebrate wealth as an end in itself, the Happy List is based on a different set of values. It honours individuals who give rather than take; the great Britons doing the very best work who go largely unnoticed and unrewarded.
