Coffee morning

July 30, 2022

Many thanks to everyone who organised, helped at, baked for and attended the fantastic coffee morning. Thanks also to St Helen's for once again letting us use their superb facilities and beautiful china.

We raised an incredible £1,400. It was really lovely to see people face to face and chat, and judging by the noise level everyone who came had a good blether. The baking was it's usual incredible standard. Nothing was wasted as the left over baking, tea and coffee etc were all gratefully received by the local foodbank, Roots. We really appreciate all the support we get locally.

Allandale Bowling Club donation

Nov. 23, 2021

Many thanks to Allandale Bowling Club for an amazing donation of £2000. The club organised a number of events and raffles and visiting clubs and individual members also made generous donations. They also let us use the club to hold our committee meetings now we can meet face to face again.

Event: Bonnybridge Bowling Club generosity

Many thanks to the members of Bonnybridge Bowling Club who have donated the amazing total of £1662.00 which they raised on the day of the Peter Shaw Trophy match. Over the years the trophy days have raised the incredible total of £25283.00 for charity. We know how much hard work and organisation it takes to do this and are very grateful for all the donations we have received from the club.

Driving during the pandemic

Oct. 9, 2020

The Driving Force is still driving during the pandemic for people who do not have someone who can take them to their appointment. We are following all the recommendations given us by Public Health to keep our passengers and drivers as safe as possible. People wear appropriate PPE, vehicles are cleaned and there is a screen between the front and the back of each car. Due to social distancing we can only take one passenger. We are also taking people living with cancer to their flu vaccinations either at Falkirk town hall or in Denny. If you would like to use our services please telephone your GP reception desk and leave your name and number and a coordinator will get in touch with you.


Anybody with cancer who is registered at either Bonnybridge, Banknock, Denny Cross, or Carronbank Health Centre can use our drivers to take them to and from hospital appointments and treatment sessions for cancer
