Volunteering

Description

Belonging to local clubs and societies makes people healthier, according to recent scientific research. From cricket to choirs, and darts to dancing, local clubs are good for us all because, it seems, belonging where we live is important to our health. Volunteering is a wonderful way to be part of Pulborough life, so why not consider joining us?

We always need new volunteers. Enjoyment of all kinds comes from such involvement. If you can spare an hour or two a week to help with Transport (drivers), Lunch Club (social activities) or would like to help with administrative work in any way, come and join us. You can be sure of a warm welcome.

As at January 2022, we are also looking for a number of volunteers and would love to hear from you if you think you might like to help:

VOLUNTEER DRIVERS URGENTLY NEEDED
The Pulborough Community Transport scheme has been running for many years, providing transport for mainly older or housebound people living in Pulborough and the surrounding villages to attend doctor, dentist, hospital and other medical appointments where they are unable to use public transport. The service is provided by volunteers using their own cars or in our wheelchair accessible vehicle, driven by a volunteer driver.
Some journeys are short and local, whilst others may be to Chichester or East Grinstead for hospital appointments, which will be considerably longer.
We really need more volunteer drivers, particularly to cover the local journeys. Our clients live mainly in Pulborough or West Chiltington. If you have a spare hour or so a week (not necessarily the same day / time) and would like to help local people in need, then please contact Christine Lindsay, our service co-ordinator, on either 01798 368407 or via e-mail at christinelindsay1@talktalk.net and she will provide further information. You must have a valid driving licence and your car must be insured for you to drive. Expenses can be paid.
On behalf of all our appreciative clients, thank you for reading this article and we’d love to hear from you if you think you could help.
