Being a dad means being a hero, that’s why this Father’s Day we honoured a local dad with the first ever Love Norwich Community Hero Award.
Way back at our GOOD Friday Servolution event we asked the people of Pilling Park to nominate who they thought of as a hero in their community and amongst all the nominations one man stood out.
This individual received three nominations and each for a different reason, exemplifying the title ‘Community Hero’. He’s generous with his time, skills and resources – whether that’s helping a neighbour with their garden or cycling over 3000 miles in aid of a charity supporting Leukaemia sufferers.
We presented our hero with a voucher for Homebase and a meal out, courtesy of Intu Chapelfield along with a certificate commemorating the award celebration at Proclaimers’ Father’s Day service last Sunday. When he took to the stage, our hero was met with a standing ovation just moments after settling his infant son, because whether they’re in the limelight or not, dads are always heroes.
