Volunteer Driver

  • VO92754


Description

If you have spare time any weekday and a car, we are looking for new Volunteer Drivers who can take local Lanarkshire Cancer Patients to and from their hospital and clinic appointments.

We can repay your fuel expenses at a rate of 40p per mile.

Your role will be to drive patients and any escort only. You will be asked for your availability by our office staff and given plenty of notice as to when and where a patient’s appointment will take place.

Our drivers agree a pick-up time with the patient the night before and will either drop them off or bring them home if their treatment is a short one. For longer treatment times, drivers will be asked to either drop the patients off or be asked if they are available to pick them up later if their time allows.

Organisation aims and objectives

To alleviate distress among cancer patients and their families by providing a personal driver service, door to door, thus avoiding lengthy travel with the ambulance service. Our service is free of charge and relies on donations and fundraising to enable us to continue.
