David was a teacher in the local sixth form college for decades and was well respected and admired...ex-pupils still come up to him in the street and thank him for everything he did for them whilst they were studying. When he took early retirement he could have sat back and taken some time for himself, but instead he chose to support people in his local communities. He has volunteered for the local Hospice since 1995, regularly visits elderly neighbours to check they are safe and well, runs the local musical society to encourage new talent, is one of the most 'mature' Sunday League football referees in the county and has mown almost every lawn in the neighbourhood! He is an unsung hero, making a huge contribution to individuals and families with his small acts of kindness and expecting nothing in return for his generosity. He is one of a kind, a truly generous man.
