Volunteer Drivers Needed For Our Patient Transport Service  

St Benedict's Hospice, Sunderland has opportunities for Volunteer Drivers within our Transport team.  

Our transport service is a key part of the Charity's provision and operates 5 days each week. Each journey is customised to meet the needs of individual patients and provided by our team of volunteer drivers whose schedule is agreed with our Transport Co-ordinator. 

Recent purchase of new vehicles has increased our fleet so that we are able to provide transport for more patients to and from their homes and St Benedict's Hospice

If you can offer at least a half day each week, preferably more, and enjoy good health with a reasonable level of fitness, it means we can provide more patients with the services they need and which we know they value.
