We Urgently Need Volunteer Drivers

Would you be able and willing to become a Volunteer Driver for Voluntary Action Rutland, Transport Section?. We currently have around 50 Volunteer Drivers taking Rutland’s frail, elderly, disabled and vulnerable to hospital and other medical appointments as well as social visits etc. We cover local hospitals such as Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General, Glenfield, Nottingham City, Queens Medical Centre, both Peterborough hospitals as well as occasionally those further afield such as Grantham Hospital, Addenbrookes and the Royal Papworth in Cambridge. We also cover all local surgeries, opticians, podiatrists, dentists etc. This service is essential for those in our community who are unable to access public transport. With a growing client base (currently at 3272) we are always in need of new Volunteer Drivers in order to fulfil our commitment to our clients, many of whom have no other alternative transport other than very expensive taxi trips. If you are interested, please contact Gerry Robinson on 01572 725485 or transportadmin@varutland.org.uk.
