As always, we are desperate for more volunteers to assist with patient travel to hospital in Totnes, Torbay, Plymouth and Exeter.

The main piece in this newsletter about planned health care changes in Dartmouth makes it clear the vital contribution that our volunteer drivers make and will need to continue to make.

If you are a car owner with some time available, from as little as 4 hours a month, we would love to hear from you. We pay expenses of 45 pence per mile and have a great team of drivers. In exchange, you will meet many wonderful people in our community, often at a time when they are in need of support, and also derive a huge degree of satisfaction from this work. Unless you have volunteered before, it is difficult to grasp the reward that you can experience when operating in this role.

Increasingly our community and others are depending on the invaluable role of volunteers, people who provide the glue to keep society in one piece.

If you think this might be you please contact Nick Hindmarsh at, or 01803 839 354.
