Street pastors win accolade for good work
STREET pastors have been recognised for their work in the city at the Devon Community Foundation annual Volunteer of the Year awards.
The Street Pastors won the Thriving Communities Award for their invaluable help in creating thriving Devon communities.
It was an initiative that was set up to ensure the streets became safer at night. Now dozens of dedicated volunteers work in partnership with the police, council and other agencies to help to make the streets a safer place.
Working in teams, they operate from 10pm to the early hours of Fridays and Saturdays and focus on areas such as Plymouth, Torbay, Exeter, Tavistock, Barnstaple, Bideford and many more across the county.

Roy Beaumont, from Plymouth Street Pastors, said: "I am proud to work alongside such a wide variety of men and women who come together with only one purpose in mind; to serve the town or city where they live and so often at their own inconvenience."
Martha Wilkinson, chief executive of Devon Community Foundation, added: "For this award we were looking for a group or organisation that embodied volunteers extending a helping hand to vulnerable people, and making a real difference to the quality of life where they work.
"The Street Pastors do this throughout our Devon Communities. They help to keep our streets a safer, supportive and less lonely place to be and it has been amazing to watch the outstanding difference they have made."
