The village of Cerne Abbas is developing a car service where volunteer drivers will collect elderly and disabled residents and transport them to the surgery, hospital and local dentists for appointments. The aim is to help those who have no access to their own or public transport and once up and running, the car service hopes to offer other essential journeys to help combat social isolation.
If you are a driver who would like to help your community in this way, please telephone 01300 341071 or 07939 262145, or email firstname.lastname@example.org It doesn’t matter how often or how far you are prepared to drive- the more drivers we have the better the service will be!
Also, if you are a local resident and think you may benefit from this service, please phone or email the details above. A charge of 50p per mile will be made for this service to cover fuel costs.
