Sir David a man of note

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & - By Karen Rock­ett

SIR David At­ten­bor­ough has topped a list of “eth­i­cal cham­pi­ons” in a vote on who we would like to see on the new £20 note.

Forty per cent made the TV leg­end their first choice from a list of 15 can­di­dates, while sec­ond-placed Prince Charles got 7 per cent

Au­thor JK Rowl­ing got 4 and hu­man rights ac­tivist Anita Rod­dick and Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury Justin Welby both had 3.

The YouGov poll for Good Money Week, from to­day to Satur­day, comes ahead of the new £20 note launch­ing in 2020.

Char­lene Cranny of the UK Sus­tain­able In­vest­ment and Fi­nance As­so­ci­a­tion said: “It’s no sur­prise Sir David came top. With his con­ser­va­tion work, he’d act as a con­stant re­minder to make eth­i­cal choices.”
