VOLUNTEER drivers are urgently needed to help the Leukaemia Foundation transport those fighting blood cancers in Canberra. While most trips are within ACT, there are occasional trips to Sydney’s Westmead Hospital.
“Just a few hours here or there would make a world of difference to patients with blood cancer, and it would all depend on you, and how much time you can give. If you have a driving licence, help by driving patients to and from hospital and medical appointments to ensure those with blood cancer arrive, and return home safely,” a spokesperson for the foundation said.
“The Foundation’s Patient Transport Service is a vital activity that would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers. Our clients tell us time and time again that this service is the most important and most practical way we assist them. Driving is a very rewarding activity and lots of our drivers have been with us for many years.
“If you are interested in making a difference, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Matt Ridley, on 9902 2215 or firstname.lastname@example.org ”
