Speaking about David's willingness to go out of his way to help others, a spokesman said: "David has been driving the group of up to 20 people who are blind or visually impaired twice a month to various venues, including Skipton, The Lake District and Blackpool. David is going to be greatly missed and we are very sad to be losing a driver and a dear friend."

He added: "If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver for the group and are interested in driving a minibus please contact chairman of the Ribble Valley Visually Group Chris Tattersall on 01200 426063 or e-mail [email protected]"
