#TeamHerts Volunteering(#THV) has spent the past two months working closely with community transport schemes across the county to recruit brand new volunteer drivers. Community Transport Schemes provide an invaluable service transporting people within their local community to important health appointments such as COVID-19 vaccinations. #THV put a call out to Hertfordshire residents at the beginning of February asking individuals to volunteer their time to support others locally and the response was overwhelming! 

 

We are incredibly proud to share that 93 residents completed the application form and there are now over 40 brand new Herts residents actively giving their time as volunteer drivers, with many more in the process of starting their volunteer journey through #THV. These volunteers have helped to secure the future of invaluable transport schemes across the county by enabling the provision of safe and affordable transportation to vital appointments. 

 

We would like to thank everyone who has come forward to support the call for volunteer drivers and we are happy to announce that there is no longer an urgent need for new drivers. If circumstances change, all volunteering vacancies will be advertised on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as in our monthly newsletter. 

 

A special thanks to Alison, Deborah, Delia, James, Jon, Pru and Tom at the various community car schemes across Hertfordshire for their cooperation, assistance and patience during this campaign and we look forward to working closely together in the future.
