If you need to get out for your weekly shop

Our volunteer drivers at your front door will stop

And if your legs are weak and you walk with an aid

They will help you on the bus and they don’t want paid


They will also take care of all your decorating needs

Cut your hedge, your grass and pull up your weeds

And for those who are elderly, isolated and alone

Our volunteers will take time to visit you at home
