Volunteer Community Car Drivers Wanted!
- Do you enjoy driving?
- Are you a “people person”?
If you can say yes to both of these, you could be exactly the person we are looking for!
We are looking for volunteer community car drivers in Kesgrave to take local residents from their homes to places such as the doctors’ surgery, hospital, supermarket and to day centres, in return for a payment of 45p per mile.
You wouldn’t have to handle any money; this would all be done by the charity which runs this service. There is a simple sign-up process for drivers, some training and safety checks. You would then be given a list of clients and their journey requests and you would choose which journeys you were able to help with. And, you would need to have internet access. Sounds simple? It is!
The scheme is run by a local charity called BSEVC and we are looking to extend the scheme properly into Kesgrave with a little support from Kesgrave Council. To make this happen we first of all need a team of local drivers – which could involve you!
For more information:
Please come to our information and sign-up event at:
Kesgrave Market on Saturday 21st October between 9am and 12.30
Once we have our drivers we can advertise the service to enable Kesgrave residents to use it, so please watch this space for more news!
