Make someone's day a bit brighter

Do you have good driving skills and own a car?

You could make someone’s day a little easier by driving them to and from their medical appointment. It’s a small thing but makes such a big difference!

Members provide a small contribution toward driver costs. You can choose to do local destinations and/or appointments in Christchurch.

How you can help

  • Drive members to and from day programmes
  • Help members in and out of minivan
  • Socialise with members on the journey
  • Ensuring vehicle is clean and tidy before and after each journey

Time commitment

Appointments are one-off and we work around your availability.
