Croydon Champions 2014

Once again, this year's Croydon Champions saw our community's unsung heroes honoured for their talent, bravery, and kindness.
The awards were launched by the Croydon Guardian in 2001, and aim to find Croydon's true heroes. These special people sometimes get little or no public recognition for what they have done.
In 13 years, we have had over 1,200 nominations, and awarded well over 100 awards across our ten categories.
Thank you to the winners, to those nominated, to the sponsors, and for everyone involved in making this a truly special event in which we continue to celebrate the best of Croydon.
