Can you help your local community?
Towcester Area Door to Door (TADD) has provided a Voluntary car service, for over 30 years, using volunteer drivers to take South Northants residents to and from their medically related appointments. It involves collecting members from their home and taking them to their appointment - surgeries, dentists & hospitals, and returning them home.
This much needed service whilst they are always seeking volunteers for the catchment area they cover, it is in the parishes of Blisworth and Deanshanger where most help is needed, and would like to find people to act as Champions by helping to recruit drivers.
Maybe you already volunteer in some capacity or have volunteered in the past and are willing to use the benefits of this experience to encourage friends/neighbours/local groups to get involved.
Here is what one of the long serving Drivers has to say:
‘Driving for TADD has been a most rewarding experience for me.
Our passengers are always so grateful and appreciative of the door to door service, and now they are more concerned as local buses are being threatened, leaving them more isolated than ever.
This is a real opportunity to support the most vulnerable in our local community.’
Friendly enjoy meeting & speaking confidently to people, and with a great sense of community.
