AT a stage of life when most people are putting their feet up, Roy Cawthron is still working full-time.
The 80-year-old Dalton man is a volunteer at Kirkwood Hospice.
Roy’s wife Marian passed away at the hospice in 2000. The retired HGV driver has worked as a driver for the charity ever since.
He said: “I’ve been a driver all my life. I don’t know what I would do without this. It fills my time.
“I’m on first-name terms with everyone at the hospice. They’re like family.”
Roy delivers supplies to the hospice’s shops in and around Huddersfield. He works from 9am to 6pm on weekdays and often helps out at weekends as well.
Hospice spokesman Garry Wilkinson paid tribute to Roy.
He said: “No-one puts in more hours than Roy. He does an awful lot for us and he’s very, very active.”
Liz Turner, who works at the hospice’s Holmfirth shop, and fundraising manager Kate Leadbeater helped organise a birthday party for Roy last month. A raffle and collection at the event raised £450 for the charity.
