A new community group called 'Junior Champions' have gone above and beyond to support key workers and residents during the outbreak.

The little stars have helped people across the borough by fundraising and delivering treats to key workers on the frontline.

In their latest project, children have been seen delivering memorial plants as a token of love and respect to those who have lost their family members to Covid-19.

One Junior champion, Lewis, organised a garden sale to help fund essential items, PPE and food to key workers across the borough.

Your Local Guardian:

The Junior Champions group was inspired by Sutton's adult community group called 'Community Champions'.

The group focuses on putting kindness back into the community by; cooking hot meals, providing protective equipment and groceries to vulnerable residents and the NHS.

Founders of Junior Champions, Nisha Thiru and Syebvonne Nguyen, said: "We started Junior Champions as there was a clear indication from the younger generation that they wanted to help.

"It is so important to tap into their enthusiasm to allow it to blossom.

"If the younger generation can see the joys of giving, and see how contagious it can be, the world will most definitely be a better and kinder place.

The groups have a joint fundraiser to help fund essentials to the community.
