Broadly speaking the Scheme is self funding, for each journey our voluntary drivers make the scheme makes a small amount which goes into our funds. Once the driver has been given his mileage at 45p per mile this does not always leave a great deal.
The cost of D.B.S. Checks for each driver and insurance for the scheme overall costs many hundreds of pounds and until the scheme has been up and running for 12 months we are not able to se if it will cover is cost.
This is where you may come in.
If you would care to make a donation to our funds it would be a considerable help and enable us to continue to keep the scheme operating for the people of Eccleshall.
Any financial donations should be made payable to the Eccleshall Voluntary Car Scheme and sent to our Honorary Treasurer Mrs Joy Jones, 25 Wheelwright Drive, Eccleshall, ST21 6LB.
