Kingston Pound is a new local currency, being set up in the borough of Kingston upon Thames. As this was for a community currency, I decided to speak to a few residents and what they felt makes Kingston special. The majority of them responded with ‘the people’. This is exactly what a community runs on, so I decided to feature local heroes on the local currency.
I aimed to highlight heroes in the community who may not be known by many people walking down the street, but do amazing work for those around them. My local heroes were all recommended by others in the community for the inspirational work they have done.
