Final call for Putney's inspirational people

When it comes to finding an inspirational person, is there someone you can think of who immediately springs to mind? If so, then now is the time to nominate them in the final call of a community-focused initiative launched this summer.

Putney Exchange Shopping Centre in SW15 is on the lookout for inspirational people who live and work in Putney, as part of its continuing 25th anniversary activities.

The ‘Putney’s Inspirational People’ campaign aims to recognise people who are inspiring others and whose achievements are making a difference in the SW15 community.

Centre Manager Anne Partridge says: “Putney Exchange has been part of the community for 25 years. It's now time to turn the spotlight onto local people who are making a difference in the Putney community.”

Putney Exchange Shopping Centre was inspired to launch the search for local heroes by Putney rower and Crewroom Ambassador Jess Eddie, who has been selected to represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games in Rio next year. The shopping centre has generously sponsored her with her own single scull boat to enhance her training programme and improve her chances of winning.
