VOLUNTEERS drivers are desperately needed by a Dawlish charity.

Dawlish Community Transport, which provides help to hundreds of people needing accessible travel, is appealing for help for more minibus drivers. 

The team, led by manager Sally Preston, will be on the Lawn in Dawlish on Monday as part of the Big Help Out, celebrating voluntary organisations. 

Based in Barton Hill Car Park, Dawlish Community Transport offers accessible and affordable transport services for people who may be unable to use public transport or need support in getting out and about.

Having just taken on a new wheelchair vehicle named Oscar, the charity is now hoping to attract more volunteer drivers. 

A spokesman said: ‘We are desperate for more minibus drivers, getting people out and about is what we are about. 

‘We are proud to be specialising in wheelchair transportation, helping to access shops, health appointments, services and leisure activities.

‘We want people to join our team who give their time to volunteer.

‘We don't just drive cars, there are many other volunteer opportunities to get involved in.

‘The more drivers we have, the more we can do for our community.’

The charity will be among voluntary groups on the Lawn on Monday.
