*********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

It is sometimes very difficult to get this information to those who  most need it as they are probably elderly, infirm ,without transport and without access to the places where it is advertised.  It requires friends and relations to pass the information on to them.

HOW TO GET HELP

Our dedicated number 0845 838 5902 will connect you with our duty co-ordinator.

Please give us 48 hours notice of the service you require and note that the phone line is only open on Weekdays between 9am and 5pm (Not Saturdays or Sundays).

Please remember that we are all volunteers with our own responsibilities so the co-ordinator cannot guarantee to be in when you phone but rest assured that if you leave a message a return call will be made to you as soon as possible.

DONATIONS

We make no charge for our services but volunteer drivers are re-imbursed on a non profit making basis at 45 pence a mile. A suitable  donation by the users of our services, taking into consideration the  return mileage would be appreciated. For example a trip to Salisbury Hospital from Sandleheath will cost us about £15 for driving costs  plus our overheads for telephone and administration so please donate what you can afford so that we can continue our work for others.

NEW VOLUNTEER DRIVERS AND CO-ORDINATORS REQUIRED

If you would like to join our group and could volunteer your services  please ring the duty co-ordinator (on the number above) and they will give you further details of the group and put you in touch with our recruiting officer.
