A GROUP serving Fordingbridge and the surrounding area is in desperate need for volunteer to drivers to take patients to their Covid vaccination.

Two Bridges Care Group says it has been "inundated with work" and is "seriously short" of drivers and coordinators.

A statement from the group said: "It is really good news that Covid vaccinations are going so well in Fordingbridge and the surrounding areas, and that there have been so many volunteers to help shepherd the patients around upon their arrival. However, there is always a downside: The Two Bridges Care Group” is now inundated with work and is seriously short of drivers and coordinators to help the less than able, the infirm and the elderly to get there for their vaccinations."

Two Bridges covers the Fordingbridge, Alderholt, Fordingbridge, Godshill and Sandleheath areas and gets people to medical and dental appointments.

All petrol expenses are paid to the volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering email Derek Ayling on hippotrain@btinternet.com , or call Valerie Allpress on 01425 656052, or the Two Bridges number, 0845 838 5902.
