EAST YORKSHIRE TRANSPORT CHARITY LAUNCHES VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT DRIVE

Manager Fiona Wales says: “Our successful service has depended on the great work of volunteers over the last half-century and they enjoy providing an invaluable service to the public. As demand for our transport rises, we need more people to help in various parts of the East Riding.”

The charity needs car drivers, minibus drivers and passenger assistants and full training will be given:

Drivers use their own car to provide essential door-to-door transport for registered passengers. They need to be over 25 with a full licence and no more than six penalty points.   

Minibus Drivers: Beverley Community Lift also operates shopper services to various East Riding towns and day trips for its clients to places like York, the coast or other popular destinations. Minibus drivers need to be 25 or over and have a D1 driving licence.

Passenger Assistants: Minibus drivers often enjoy the support of a volunteer to help with journeys and looking after passengers. It is ideal to have passenger assistants for regular shopper services and day trips so it is up to the individual how much time can be given. The role may involve assisting customers with wheelchairs and handling money.

For full details, please call 01482 868082, email manager@bclift.org.uk, or visit www.bclift.org.uk for information about the charity and the roles.
