Not surprisingly, this can include fundraisers, volunteers, charity leaders and all kinds of people in and around the charity/voluntary sector, the arts/cultural sector, social enterprise, and the public sector.Those who have appeared on previous lists – this is the fifth year of the Happy List – have included inspirational teachers, inventors, women who have fostered and hundreds of children.The newspaper suggests that nominations could be quite wide ranging, from a doctor or midwife, to a comedian, artist, musician, or someone who has battled to save part of Britain’s heritage or countryside. The key element is that they must not be a celebrity, and their motive must be “human happiness, rather than feathering their own nest”.How to nominate for The Independent on Sunday Happy ListThe charity sector alone should throw up a very long list of names, but you have to nominate them. To do so, just send a few details about them and the reason you are nominating them to [email protected], (“no attachments, please”), or, by post, to: IoS Happy List, Letters editor, Independent on Sunday, 2 Derry Street, London W8 5HF.You can read the 2011 Happy List atwww.independent.co.uk/news/people/news/the-iiosi-happy-list-2011–the-100-2280696.htmllast_img read more
