The Driving Force takes anyone who has cancer and is registered with a GP in Bonnybridge, Denny or Banknock to hospital appointments for FREE.
The Driving Force is still operating during the covid pandemic.Please contact your GP reception if you have no-one to take you to hospital or you would like a phone buddy or help with relaxation and stress.
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.
Many thanks to everyone at Bonnybridge Bowling Club who helped raise an incredible £1530 at the Peter Shaw Trophy is run each year with many bowlers taking part – it goes on all day and in between times there are raffles etc. Everyone taking part has a bacon roll in the morning followed by lunch and a fish supper at night. We are especially grateful as we have been beneficiaries in the past!!!
Many thanks to all those of you who helped run the coffee morning. We raised the amazing total of £950. As usual we had fantastic baking and a great atmosphere. If you brought family and friends to help please pass on our thanks to them. Thanks also to all those to attended and spent so generously and helped consume all the baking!
Many thanks to Linzi Barbour who organised butterfly memorial tree Banknock and to everyone who donated to The Driving Force in memory of loved ones that have passed away. Their names are written onto butterflies and a tree is decorated with them. The amazing total of £300 was donated to the Driving Force. A lovely way to remember, at this time of year, those we love who are no longer with us.
