Main details
Our busy scheme (mainly weekdays) is run and staffed entirely by volunteers who kindly meet many varied requests but we are not a taxi service so requests for a driver need to be given well in advance.
We can take people to the medical centre for all services, to any hospital you are referred to, including for short operations like cataracts and to support radiotherapy appointments, for hospice treatment, to visit family including in hospital but not regularly, to social events such as Advent Soup lunches.
Charges are according to a fixed Shropshire Council tariff and must be paid to the driver in full on the day of the drive. A receipt can be issued where journey cost can be reclaimed.
We are regularly looking for new drivers who are free to say when they want to drive and the type of driving they feel able to do.
