Beaches Community Car Service [BCCS]
BCCS is a volunteer driver scheme to provide transport to medical [given priority] and social appointments for those who have difficulties using or accessing public transport because of age and/or mobility, or live where public transport is limited. The scheme covers Waterbeach, Landbeach, Milton, Chittering, and Horningsea. We have a number of regular/occasional clients in Landbeach.
We would be interested in hearing from any driver who has a few hours to spare, and would be interested in joining the scheme. Drivers can do as little or as much as they wish, and will be compensated at the rate of 45p per mile [this is not taxable]. The scheme is under the auspices of Cambridgeshire County Council and Care Network.
We are also in need of coordinators, who use the scheme’s mobile phone, and take turns to liaise with clients and drivers. This involves a few hours each week for two weeks, at approximately two monthly intervals.
