Pershore and District Volunteer Centre
Pershore and District Volunteer Centre need your help.
We are currently in desperate need for volunteer drivers, all you need is your own vehicle and the gift of a couple of hours each week.
Call 01386 554299 if you can help.
We are hoping to crowdfund enough money to expand our fleet of vehicles with the purchase of an electric multi person vehicle (MPV) to transport groups of people to community activities ( lunch club) and maximise the services of our voluntary drivers reducing social isolation
Since COVID Pershore Volunteer Centre has seen more demand for its social car scheme and a heartfelt plea to restart the Lunch club for older, vulnerable people who are socially isolated. The lunch club previously attracted 50 users and volunteers and since COVID the waiting list has increased by 120%. The project will provide transport to groups of people from the same location to attend lunch club or other social activities in Pershore and neighbouring villages and day trips to other locations. The vehicle will enable PVDC to free up other social car scheme drivers to continue with individual services for our clients, while lunch club participants enjoy their activity.
The electric MPV will reduce the carbon footprint of Pershore Volunteer Centre. The vehicle will enable PDVC to offer days out and other activities to socially isolated people, with no access to any public or other transport means, across the Wychavon District and promote social mobility.
Thank you once again for your amazing support.
The team at the centre.
