Healthcare Appointment or Other Personal Transport Need? Can We Collect and Deliver Your Shopping?
For pre-arranged appointments / Pre-ordered shopping delivered to you
If getting to a doctor, podiatrist, dentist, optician, medical specialist or other health appointment is a problem, we can help get you there and home again. No matter if you live up a tiny country lane or the hospital appointment is 100 miles away!
If getting to the shops regularly is a problem, we can help by collecting your shopping for you. We are also able to collect and deliver prescriptions, and pre-ordered take-away food, locally for those in need. For shopping, we receive your shopping list via email, telephone, or handed in to the driver when we call. The shopping is delivered to your door. You reimburse us the shopping cost, plus a small admin charge. The service is primarily for the elderly, infirm or people self-isolating, however we will help as many people and age groups as possible. Big shops like Tesco, Co-op and smaller local shops are included.
This service is provided by our wonderful group of voluntary drivers and is charged on a mileage basis. The cost is always subsidised. Please enquire for details.
Sometimes we’re able to offer this service free of charge — if we have received a grant to cover your journey.
Your spouse, partner, or carer always travels free.
We do have a wheelchair friendly vehicle if you’re unable to get into a car.
Driver qualifications for our drivers are detailed on the About Us page.
