Volunteer Drivers Needed !
At South Northants Volunteer Bureau we urgently need volunteer car drivers especially in Brackley. We have over 395 active passengers living in the town who are primarily elderly people who find it difficult to get to essential medical or social care.
Our service is very popular with new passengers wanting to register on a daily basis. Unfortunately due to a shortage of drivers we have to put new passengers on a waiting list until we are in a position where we have more drivers and can fulfil any medical journeys that are required.
The Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service is managed by SNVB and the service helps those from Brackley and surrounding villages. Volunteer car drivers are paid mileage allowance and the voluntary role is totally flexible, with drivers choosing which journeys they would like to do, when and how often.
If you feel that you would be able to support this recruitment drive in anyway or if you would like anymore information then please do not hesitate to contact me.
