Volunteer Connect runs a volunteer driving scheme throughout Cherwell, providing transport to those people with problems accessing public transport to get to important appointments. The cost is 45p per mile, which goes to the volunteer driver to cover the cost of petrol.  We also need more drivers! This can be a very rewarding experience, helping those within the community to travel to hospitals, GPs, dentists, podiatrists etc.  It is not an onerous commitment, as it is on as “as and when” basis.  To find out more please call 0300 3030 125, or email pip.dealtry@volunteerconnect.org.uk
