Volunteer Drivers – Maghera – help people with cancer get to and from hospital appointments

The impact of driving for a charity is immense. Here is a powerful testimony from one of our volunteer drivers:

Jim explains: “I was a lorry driver all my working life but I had an accident which meant I could no longer drive lorries, only cars. I found not being able to do my normal job quite isolating. I wasn’t really talking to people much and not getting out of the house. Then I found myself past retirement age, so I went in for volunteering and that really gave me back my ‘get up and go’.

“Being a volunteer driver doesn’t just get me out and about, it also lets me meet and chat to good people, like Jeanette, who I’m very happy to help. I take Jeanette to any appointments she needs to get to and we have a nice chat with one another on the way. Knowing that I’m helping people is great and driving helps me feel more like my old self. Volunteering gives you something to occupy your mind and a chance to be social while you’re helping somebody out. I couldn’t recommend it enough.”
