For Chichester Stroke Club

Register your Interest

Chichester Stroke Club requires drivers/escorts for Thursday mornings between 9 am and 1 pm to transport members to the Club for 10 am and pick them up again at midday to return them back home. The journey would be around Chichester and the club is held in the Newell Centre, Tozer Way, Chichester. The minibus is also garaged in Tozer Way. There is volunteer parking at the Newell Centre. We operate a rota system so volunteers are not required every Thursday, although often stay to help at the Club.

Skills

Drivers would need to have a full driving licence and be driving for at least two years and be over 21.

Drivers and escorts would be given training to familiarise themselves with the minibus.
