The Wokingham Volunteer Centre provides a much needed service for older residents without their own transport and unable to use public transport. We help our members get to vital medical and other appointments and also provide support to ensure they get to the right place at the right time, stay with them for the appointment and then return them home safe and sound. We also take members to social events or on shopping trips and help to reduce loneliness and increase coinfidence and social interaction, or even take them to the hairdresser’s!
If you have some time and your own car and would like to become one of our wonderful volunteer drivers helping others in the Borough, we would love to hear from you. We are currently serving the RG40 and RG41 areas and we will reimburse your mileage costs. You may choose to do as much or as little as you wish and also choose just to support medical appointments or any combination of drives needed.
Please get in touch for further details by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0118 977 0749 and we will tell you more about the scheme.
