WHAT WE DO
Their car service takes people to vital medical appointments e.g. doctors, hospital, dentist etc. and on other journeys as required e.g. to visit a loved one in a care home. Their minibus services offer weekly food shopping trips and social outings, e.g. to the theatre, for Sunday pub lunches, or to visit a garden centre. In this way, their transport services help people feel connected to their community, as one of their passengers explained: ‘I feel very lonely since my partner passed away.
Using Beverley Community Lift’s car service makes me feel that someone cares. Thank you for your kindness.’ We rely on the generosity of volunteer drivers who donate their time to provide our services, and a warm welcome awaits all new volunteer drivers.
“Elderly and disabled people are at the heart of everything we do. We’ve been providing the transport services they need for over 47 years, helping them to stay mentally and physically healthy, and reduce their feelings of loneliness. Our charity’s ethos is ‘local people helping other people in their own community’ and we rely on the generosity of volunteer drivers who freely give their time to provide our transport services”. — Charity Manager, Fiona Wales
