The Independent on Sunday Happy List

On Sunday The Independent on Sunday published its sixth annual Happy List, and Gary Bishop, Justlife founder and director was listed. It names 100 outstanding people whose volunteering, caring, fundraising, mentoring, charity founding or selflessness makes Britain a more contented, supportive, better-adjusted and happier place.

People have been selected not only because what they do is inspiring, but because they are representative of the hundreds of thousands of people who make Britain a happier place by volunteering, fundraising or caring. The final list was the result of weeks of research, appeals across social media, and scores of nominations from individuals and organisations.
