A community transport scheme that has been providing help and assistance to local people since 2001 is looking for new volunteers in the Peasedown St John area.
Based in Radstock, SWAN Transport is for those living in Bath and North East Somerset who are elderly or on low incomes.
With more than 400 people registered, volunteers are always needed to take people to hospital appointments, training or education opportunities, or simply for just trips out.
Peasedown councillor Nathan Hartley said: “SWAN has a very positive reputation for providing a reliable service to those who take part in the scheme.
“Thanks to a variety of funding sources, the organisation is able to provide car lifts at a subsidised rate to those who need them.”
With 20 volunteer drivers, SWAN has been able to transport people to a variety of different locations.
As demand for Swan’s transport grows they are continually seeking new drivers to help with this rewarding work.
All mileage costs are reimbursed and volunteer drivers can state the days or times they would be willing to drive. Some drivers are able to help each week, others just a couple of times a month.
Nathan added: “Due to the increased number of people in Peasedown St John subscribing to SWAN Transport, it would be great to have villagers signing up to become volunteer drivers.”
