Lyndhurst Neighbourcare drivers provide a valuable service to help people without family or friends available, to attend surgery, dental or hospital appointments. We also enable people to do essential shopping, banking or other necessary errands.
WILL YOU HELP US TO KEEP THIS SERVICE RUNNING?
Just an hour or two of your time per month could help someone who needs this service.
You don’t have to commit a regular time, and you can refuse any job if it is not convenient. Our drivers really enjoy meeting the people they drive and your driving expenses are paid.
If you would like to join our team of drivers*, to help in any other way, or just to make enquiries, please phone our Voicemail service on 0845 0945 818 and we will get back to you.
