Please may I ask for the Journal's assistance in finding a volunteer driver to help once a month for a couple of hours with our local charity group.
Please may I ask for the Journal's assistance in finding a volunteer driver to help once a month for a couple of hours with our local charity group.Contact the Elderly is a national charity that aims to relieve the loneliness and isolation often felt by elderly people living alone in their own homes. On one Sunday afternoon each month, three drivers take a group of nine elderly guests out for tea provided by a volunteer hostess. You can see more about us at www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk Our friendly and thriving local group is based on Exmouth and has been running successfully for six years, but we now need a new volunteer driver with their own four-door car. You would collect two of our guests from their homes and drive them to the hostess for tea, which is held between 3.pm and 5pm on the second Sunday of each month, usually in the Exmouth or Budleigh area.If anyone feels they might be able to help and would like more information, please call me on 07814 812035 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Andrew Burke,Exmouth Group Coordinator,Contact the Elderly,St Leonards, Exeter.
