Volunteer drivers needed for Oxford charity

By John Charlton

Oxford charity Archway is looking for more volunteer drivers to provide a lifeline to those who are isolated.

Archway’s volunteer drivers provide a key service to those who cannot reach the weekly social groups and meet other people. By becoming a volunteer driver for Archway, many more people will be able to attend Archway’s events and connect with others. Anyone interested can apply to volunteer for any Archway volunteer role online via the website or by calling 01865 790552.

The Archway Foundation was established in Oxford in 1982 to help relieve some of the real distress caused by loneliness. They connect those feeling alienated with a diverse group of volunteers, many of whom know for themselves how damaging loneliness can be.
