AN ECO-CHAMPION has been shortlisted in a nationwide search by charity WWF to find Britain's unsung environmental heroes.

Grace Onions, from Waddon, was nominated by a friend because she works tirelessly in support of many environmental causes.

The competition, called Hidden Heroes, has been launched as part of WWF's Earth Hour with the aim of highlighting and recognising inspirational people who have gone the extra mile in helping to improve the environment in their community.

As well as organising on-street recycling long before household collections, Grace is an active member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, and has organised the Croydon Real Nappy Network, encouraging mums to use cloth nappies.

Friend Amaragosha Carter, who nominated Grace, said: "She follows an organic lifestyle herself; she has an allotment patch, and shares what she produces. She's awesome."

Grace is in the running to receive a £500 cash prize to support a green initiative of her choice.

If successful, she will be invited to receive her award and celebrate Earth Hour at a ceremony in central London on March 23.
