The Church runs “The Fellowship” for those who are over 50. It meets on Wednesdays from 10am to 3pm, and provides social activities, lunch and friendship. Some of our friends need transport to the Church, and, perhaps, some assistance getting to and from our Minibus. For the group to run successfully we need the following:
The volunteer driver would be picking up people from the Bucksburn/Newhills area. There are usually three runs before the 10am start, and two runs after the group finishes. The driver is welcome to stay for lunch, or join in the whole session. A clean driving licence is required.
Some of our friends need a helping hand to and from the minibus, sometimes with walking frames. The bus has a 2-tier step. The escort ensures that the person safely enters and exits the minibus, has the seatbelt on etc. Again, you would be welcome to stay for lunch or the whole session.
We require these folks with some sense of urgency. The Fellowship resumes in September and we would love to have the volunteers in place by then. The commitment would ideally be every Wednesday, but we would hope to have enough names to create a rota. All we require is a passion to help.
