The Haddenham Community Vehicle is a transport service that has been set up to assist those who find getting around to be a particular challenge by nature of disability. The term disability is used here to mean any condition that makes travel in an ordinary vehicle, public or private, difficult to access, not just those confined to wheelchairs.
In recognition of the important not-for-profit role that the HVC service plays in Haddenham and surrounding villages, the organisation has now achieved full registration as a charity with the Charity Commission.
HVC is picking up some of the transport service provision previously offered by Aylesbury Dial-a-Ride, and organisers are very eager to hear from anybody who may be prepared to act as an occasional driver.
The requirements are simple enough:
- Ideally to be available to drive for two or three trips per month: some of the requests are for regular weekly trips to the Multiple Sclerosis centre in Wendover for physiotherapy sessions (a round trip may take up to three hours); others may just be for transport around the village
- Moderately fit, in case a wheelchair user needs assistance to ascend the shallow vehicle ramp
- A full driving licence
- Prepared to undergo a basic DBS check (formally known as a CRB check)
If you would like to contribute to this vital community role, please get in contact with Dr Hugh Stradling, Email: email@example.com
