Residents are so proud of community builder Dan Best they have nominated him in the Torbay Weekly Our Heroes awards

A Torbay community builder is a true hero – in fact, he is worthy of a nomination in the Torbay Weekly Our Heroes awards.

Dan Best is the Torbay Community Development Trust’s community builder for the Hele, Barton and Watcombe area of Torquay.

One of the residents has contacted the Torbay Weekly to say: “He is a wonderful man who never stops doing what he can to help others. He works as a community builder. For him it’s not a job, but a lifestyle.

“Even during these difficult times, he is delivering food parcels, topping up local punk pantries and managing a community garden, growing vegetables for the community.

“He is a true inspiration and would do anything to help anyone.”

The Our Heroes initiative, in partnership with Majestic Holidays, is a way of recognising those people who have gone out of their way to help others in the pandemic.

If there is an individual or organisation you would like to nominate just send the details of who and why and a photograph to torbayweekly@archant.co.uk
