Why not become a volunteer driver with the Haslingfield and Harlton Community Car Scheme.
The scheme helps people who don’t have access to a car to get to medical appointments and other essential visits. As a volunteer driver you are completely in control of how much – or how little – driving you do. You provide details of your general availability to the Scheme Coordinator (Lawrence Hopkins), and when the Coordinator contacts you by phone or e-mail to ask if you can do a particular drive, you can say Yes or No – no pressure is applied!
