We always like to shout about Londoners, small businesses and social enterprises that have been doing good things for the city and the people that live in it. But as there are so many people out there that make London what it is – the best city in the world – we wanted to do it regularly. Enter Local Heroes, our way of showing the love to London’s good guys, indie businesses and neighbourhood spots, like a pizza restaurant that donates to food banks and a jewellery biz that offers employment support to those experiencing homelessness.
