Drivers. We are currently in need of additional car drivers and minibus drivers to transport patients to and from the Day Hospice.
Minibus Escorts. There is an urgent need for people to accompany the minibus drivers to bring in patients for the Day Hospice. What is required is to assist them to the minibus; help them settle in the bus; help them during the journey if required and to assist with them into the Hospice. While a regular commitment would be best, being able to provide occasional help would also be very valuable. Why not accompany a minibus to help make up your mind?
