We are always in need of volunteer drivers!

Whatever your availability, we welcome your help! Some of our drivers help several times a week, some once a month. Delivering Meals on Wheels is a rewarding activity helping to keep in touch with older people in the area who may be housebound or isolated, ensuring that they have at least one nutritious meal a day and contact with another person.

Rounds start at 11:30 or 11:45 and would take 45 – 90 minutes of your time. We run a monthly prize draw for all of our volunteers as a way to say thank you as we couldn’t provide this much needed service without them! 

Please get in touch to become part of our valued team of volunteer drivers.
