TENBURY Transport Trust is appealing for more volunteer drivers.

The trust provides a bus and car service to people living in the area.

It has three mini buses and a fleet of volunteer car drivers.

The drivers receive a mileage allowance and use their own vehicles.

In most cases there are no insurance issues but volunteers should check.

“With most of us leading super busy lives, the idea of volunteering, giving your time and energy to a cause without financial reward, may seem an impossible task,” said Wendy Schuster, manager of the Transport Trust.

“I mean, how can we fit anything else into our already jam-packed schedules? However, volunteering is important for many reasons and doesn't have to take up too much time.

“The benefits of volunteering are vast for the volunteer, not just the community, individual or organisation receiving their assistance.”

Volunteering provides a connection with others and helps to make friends.

It can also help to build self confidence and improve the physical and mental health of the volunteer.

Tenbury Transport Trust needs volunteer car drivers.

People who are interested, have their own car and some time to spare are asked to call into the office and find out more.

There are no set hours, set days or contracts.

Drivers give as much time as they can spare.

People who are interested in volunteering as drivers should call 01584 810491
