Alton Webteam: November 2017
Alton Community Care provides transport for people from Alton and its surrounding villages who need to get to medical appointments. With the deterioration of public transport our service is a lifeline for patients who would otherwise find great difficulty in keeping the appointments which may be so vital for their health.
TO KEEP THIS ESSENTIAL SERVICE GOING WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS.
We need both co-ordinators and drivers.
Co-ordinators do 2 or 3 days at a time, from their own homes. With a team of 8, this means one or two duties a month and we can be very flexible.
Drivers can do as few or as many journeys as they wish, taking people from their own homes to local surgeries, the Community Hospital or hospitals further afield — mainly Basingstoke.
COULD YOU HELP?
