Volunteer Drivers Urgently Required

We are a busy volunteer organisation and are seeking to increase our team of drivers. Have you a D1 on your licence (it'll be there automatically if you passed your test before 1997)? Full training and back-up will be given. A shift is usually half a day, and you can drive as many or as few shifts as you wish in any month.

To find out more see our volunteering page.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
