VOLUNTEER drivers are urgently needed for the Rother Valley Together (RVT) minibus.

RVT provides transport for elderly people in the town and surrounding villages and brings them into the new Grange for lunch and a variety of activities.

Colin Hughes, founding member of RVT, said: “An opportunity to get out which would otherwise be denied them is made possible through the voluntary efforts of the drivers who bring them in.

“RVT needs voluntary drivers. You may have experience of driving minibuses or vans or if not, training can be given.

“It is a most enjoyable task and enables those who use the buses to have a nice day out.

“If you think you can help then please ring 0776 376 6434 for further information or advice. You will be most welcome. We need you.”

Many older drivers are able to drive minibuses under the ‘D1’ category.

Anyone who would like to join the lunch club or knows of someone who might benefit from coming. can tell RVT now by contacting staff on the same number.
