A man who died in a helicopter crash last week inspired his friend to donate hundreds of pounds to charity in his name.
A friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, of 50-year-old John Kent, who died in a helicopter that crashed off the coast of East Yorkshire, has donated more than £200 to the British Blind society and a Buddhist centre in Tibet.
He said: “I think John would be very happy with these charities.”
Mr Kent died off the coast of Flamborough, along with pilot Brian Bridgman, 58, from Canterbury, Kent, when their Bell JetRanger fell into the sea while they were flying from West Lothian to Nottinghamshire.
These charities were chosen by John’s friend because he felt they would have had his “seal of approval”.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) started an investigation into the incident and Humberside Police continue to work alongside the AAIB, offering support to the families of the men.
