The Driving Force takes anyone who has cancer and is registered with a GP in Bonnybridge, Denny or Banknock to hospital appointments for FREE.

Wonderful service. Drivers are all lovely people and do an amazing job. Great charity, don’t know where I would have been without them.

This weeks coordinator is

Davie Stewart

I am retired and moved to Bonnybridge in 2012. I enjoy dog walking, golfing and being a labourer for Linda in the garden.

Our coordinators work on a flexible rota of 2 weeks out of every 10. They work from their own homes, all equipment is provided and expenses are reimbursed.

They phone the doctor’s surgeries daily collecting the names and phone numbers of any one who wants to travel with us. They arrange a driver for each journey, and phone back the patient with the driver’s details.

This typically takes one hour per day, though if things are busy it can take up to 2 hours.
