Kind-Hearted Taxi Driver Appeals For Help

Friday September 6 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A KIND-HEARTED taxi driver who started giving pensioners free rides to the seaside following the death of his mother is looking for more drivers to help continue the tradition.

Mark Taylor has offered an annual OAP trip to Cleethorpes for the last five years after he lost mum Hilda in 2008.

The 53-year-old, of Victoria Street, Penistone, was disappointed he had to turn people down for this year's fully-booked excursion and is now searching for more help.

Daughter Rebecca Taylor said: "It's his way of giving something back to the community. He says he felt horrible that he had to turn people away."

Mark, assisted by fellow cabbies Fred and Gary Jackson and Peter Holmes, took 32 passengers to the coast last week.
