Otter Wheels – 100 Journeys

One year on and we have just had our 100th journey (see picture – Elizabeth Marriott with driver Mick Bulman). It all started very slowly, but the number of client’s has gradually increased and now we need extra drivers to meet the need, particularly during holiday periods.

If you are interested in becoming an occasional driver for the scheme please contact Yvonne on 07925 154216.

Expenses are paid and you only accept a journey if it is convenient to you.  The scheme and drivers are much appreciated by all the users of this now essential service.
