Community Car Scheme

We are proud to be supporting the Community Car Scheme in Sturminster Newton and are raising their profile in trying to find more drivers to keep this much needed scheme running.

Please read the following and if interest please contact Wendy Catley or ourselves for more information.

"Firstly, I want to appologise for any disruption to our service recently. Our resources at Community Cars have become very  limited and we urgently need more drivers if we are to continue this valuable service. Being a volunteer driver means you meet all sorts of interesting people, you choose how much time you can give and receive 45p a mile to cover expenses.

Last year, Community Cars transported 340 people to numerous destinations including hospital appointments covering at least 9 different hospitals. Our volunteer drivers also go to medical centres, dentists, chiropodists, physiotherapists and sometimes to the hairdresser and to catch trains and coaches. Fortunately, Stalbridge now has their own scheme so we no longer need to cover that area, but since the surgery closed at the end of last year many more people need help with transport."

If you would like to know more about the service or would like to volunteer to drive, please phone me on 01258 473439.
