Newquay woman leaves taxi driver £250,000 in her will

A Cornish taxi driver is £250,000 better off thanks to the will of a grateful customer.

For 20 years Don Pratt and his wife Gill ferried Mary Watson to and from the shops, to the doctors and on other errands around Newquay where she lived.

Ten years ago she moved away and died aged 86 in December 2009, leaving the couple her estate which included a small house and savings worth £250,000.

Mr Pratt, 65, has sold his taxi firm and has retired.

Mrs Watson became a regular customer of Don’s Cabs after Mr Pratt offered to help take her shopping into her home.

After that Don’s Cabs was the firm Mrs Watson used every day to get around the Cornish seaside resort.

Mr Pratt said: “I always try to help old people because one day you will be needing that help yourself.
