A VOLUNTEER is needed for a charity to help drive people around Budleigh and Exmouth.

The Exmouth group of the national Contact the Elderly charity is appealing for a volunteer with their own four door car.

The driver will collect two people from their homes and drive them out for tea with a hostess which is held between 3pm and 5pm on the second Sunday of each month.

Contact The Elderly has more than 4000 volunteers and works to help relieve loneliness often felt by people who live alone with little or no social support.

Andrew Burke, the Exmouth group coordinator, said: "Our friendly and thriving group has been running successfully for six years but we now need a new volunteer driver with their own four door car."

If you would like to help or would like more information contact Andrew on: 07814 812035.
