He recently posted on his facebook blog, "I was contacted recently by the brother of a lady from Gloucester called Carmel Webb.

"Carmel sadly died on New Year’s Eve. Although I didn’t know her, it sounds like she was an amazing person who did a huge amount for her community and I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight her and some of the great things that happen in Gloucester, both to people at home and to a wider audience.

"I sometimes feel like Gloucester gets a bad rap, often from the people that live there, but there are good people there and everywhere. Wayne has started a nice idea called Carma, based on random acts of kindness."
