Louise Jones nominated Dan Howarth. Louise said, “Dan has a diagnosis of autism and learning disability. Last year we held a meeting of service users to plan a newsletter, Dan suggested we support a charity for the year and it was suggested by him the homeless, we adopted Emmanuel House. Since then Dan has started volunteering there each week where he helps sort the clothing and food.

He has helped collect donations and took a car full of items before Christmas. At the Nottingham Christmas Market Dan saw some homeless men in a door way so he asked his carers to buy them some gloves, he then handed them the gloves.

Dan is well known in Burton Joyce and often pops in to neighbours for a cuppa. I think he deserves the award for his continued work for the homeless."
