HELP Ripon & Rural Voluntary Car Driving Service

HELP Ripon & Rural Voluntary Car Driving Service

Our volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to offer door to door transport for non-urgent journeys to medical appointments, day centres, lunch clubs, shops, visiting sick relatives and social activities. The service is for anyone who finds it difficult to access other means of transport due to mobility and/or location. Journeys need to be booked at least two days in advance. For more information or to book a journey please call 01765 645907
