Mr Martin drove people tomedicalappointments, hairdressers and the supermarket,or did their shopping for them if they weren’t able to leave the house.

At 81, he decided it’s time to wind down.

He has trained up a new volunteer, and encourages anyone who can spare the time to think about volunteering.

“It’s a service to the community, there are people out there who areunfortunate,” he said.
