Volunteer drivers wanted


Could you drive a person with dementia to Garget Walker House in Richmond once or twice a week? You would be providing a vital service to someone who will be able to benefit from a day of enjoyable activity and social contact, and their carer with some valuable respite.

Our volunteer driving scheme to Garget Walker House is funded by the Friends of Garget Walker House, and is managed by Stokesley Community Care. Drivers receive expenses monthly for their mileage, and at the initial meeting, drivers are able to discuss and negotiate the times they are available.

The centre in Richmond covers the rural Dales and transport to the centre is much appreciated by clients who would otherwise not be able to attend and it can be rewarding and enjoyable for volunteers who provide this valuable service.

Please ring Kate Hamilton, Volunteer Co-ordinator, on 01642 710085.
