Busy service needs more volunteers to help get people to appointments

More volunteer drivers are needed to help run the One Ilfracombe Car Service.

The service helps residents get to non-local medical appointments and has proved very popular.

Volunteers are paid 45p per mile and need have their own car and be flexible.

Kate Shimmell, volunteer co-ordinator said “This is a lovely and rewarding opportunity for anyone who can spare some time to help, even if it’s just for one morning or afternoon a week, as getting to medical appointments can prove very difficult for a lot of people.”
