Can you spare some time to help with a vital community service?
Borderhoppa, the provider of community transport across 56 parishes in South Norfolk and North Suffolk, urgently needs volunteer drivers to help with regular outings for residents in the areas covered by the scheme. Community transport works because of goodwill and time given by people who volunteer as drivers, office staff and trustees.
At present Borderhoppa needs drivers to help with outings, including trips to the coast, lunches and visits to garden centres. Service users value the outings as ways of getting out and about and meeting up with friends, which many people are otherwise unable to do, either because they don’t have a car or don’t have access to a regular commercial bus service to and from where they live. Drivers need to have a D1 category on their licence, basically, entitlement to drive a minibus with no more than 18 passengers. Mileage expenses are paid but the time commitment is a gift to the community. To find out more, call Borderhoppa on 01379 854800 or e-mail email@example.com
