Manorlands-based Sue Ryder fundraiser Andrew Wood met the Prime Minister at a reception in 10 Downing Street.
Mr Wood was among people from across the country invited to the St George’s Day gathering in recognition of their community work.
He was asked to attend by Keighley MP Kris Hopkins, who gave him a whistle-stop tour of Parliament before they headed to Downing Street.
The invitation was in tribute to his work with Manorlands, organising hugely successful events such as the Keighley BigK 10K, the Worth Valley Young Farmers and projects including Fields of Vision for the Tour de France.
“I was honoured and proud to be invited – it was a wonderful experience,” said Mr Wood.
“But you can only do the things I do if you are part of a good team, and I felt I was there representing everybody.”
Among the things he chatted with David Cameron about was the visit of the Tour de France this summer.
“He said it was fantastic the Tour is coming and that he will be travelling to Yorkshire for it,” added Mr Wood.
“He said he will try to see the Fields of Vision while he is up here.”
