This is what one of our volunteers, Lin McCall, who is now a trustee of the charity had to say about volunteering:
Why am I doing this?
I feel as though I’m giving something back. I love being with people. My job was very absorbing, and I found it difficult to switch off after I retired.
I’ve picked up people who tell me they haven’t left the house for a fortnight – some of our clients are over 90. They are always so grateful for your help, and we really do have fun with them!
It’s an amazing feeling when someone tells you that you’ve made their day. But the way I see it, it’s the people I help who’ve made my day!
Opportunities for volunteering at Worcester Wheels
Either in your own car or one of our vehicles.
Providing support to customers in the vehicles
Working in the office, as:
- Telephonist – taking calls and booking journeys for customers.
- Clerical support – keeping electronic and paper records up to date.
- Assisting with marketing and promotions – ensuring that the charity’s website is up to date.
We always need more volunteers to meet the growing number of requests for transport from our customers. New volunteers will be joining a small friendly team of staff and volunteers, who are all dedicated to providing the best possible service to those in need locally. Full training will be provided.
The amount of time committed to helping is entirely up to the individual volunteer.
We are heavily reliant on grants and donations to meet our costs and minimize our fares.
Help us to continue to deliver an affordable service.
