Time on your hands? Recently retired or empty nest syndrome? Then why not give volunteer driving a go?
After a break during the pandemic we are starting to resume driving activity with our team of volunteer drivers helping older and infirm residents, living in Fleet & Church Crookham, attend their medical appointments. As things hopefully return to the 'new normal' we are seeing increasing numbers of elderly residents needing to attend routine appointments and we are therefore looking to grow our pool of drivers.
Could you join our driving team?
Using your own car, volunteers choose when and where they volunteer, from weekly to just once a month; you can drive short trips to local surgeries or longer journeys to hospitals - the choice is yours! Expenses for mileage are paid.
Caring, common sense approach required - you should enjoy working with older people.
You do not need a 'clean' driving licence - 3 points is acceptable.
Knowledge of the local area is beneficial - but if you have a Sat Nav - perfect!
Must be physically fit

18+ but ideally a couple of years driving experience.

Petrol at 50p per mile
