An East Yorkshire community transport group has called for more volunteers on a visit to Beverley.

Under contract with the council, the charity operates the Beverley Mibus shopper service.

In Beverley, Market Weighton, and Pocklington, Beverley Community Lift has vacancies for volunteer minibus and car drivers.

The council’s group manager of transportation services, Colin Walker, and councillor Elvidge met with the charity’s manager Fiona Wales and driver Brian Adamson at its Corporation Road office.

Councillor Elvidge said:

“It was really nice to meet the team at Beverley Community Lift.

“The charity, like other community transport groups in the East Riding, provides vital services for the council and for residents in our area.

“If anyone can spare some free time to help elderly or disabled people reach medical appointments or go for trips out, I would urge them to please volunteer.”

Fiona Wales said:

“We were very pleased to meet with Councillor Elvidge and it’s great that the council is so supportive of our local community transport sector.”

The Beverley Community Lift offers a caring and sustainable transportation service. Dedicated to helping everyone in need within the community.

In a dedicated and compassionate way, they strive to combat social and rural isolation by getting people out and about.

Founded as a neighbourhood support service that involved churches and community groups in Beverley, the charity provides assistance to every street in the town.  Among the types of assistance available were gardening, shopping, and medical assistance. 

Beverley Roundtable donated the first minibus in the early 1970s. Five vehicles are now owned by the charity. 

It also runs a charity shop on Sow Hill Road, which raises much-needed funds.
