Driver/Befriender Scheme Grant £250

At its October meeting, the parish council decided to give a grant of £250 towards the expenses of the drivers and volunteers of the Ampleforth Patient’s Forum Driver/Befriender Scheme.  Between the 29th September 2011 and the 3 September 2013, 397 requests for help with transport to a healthcare appointment have been made from Hovingham and Ampleforth Surgeries.

If you, or if you know of anyone, who would like to volunteer as a driver/befriender please contact  Steve Twynham of the Community Service Volunteers Charity running the scheme on 07757 684099.
