West Parley NeighbourCar celebrates 3000th trip

8 November 2017
West Parley NeighbourCar celebrated its 3000th trip on Wednesday 8 November when volunteer driver Derek called for one of our very first clients, Marjorie Kinsey. She was on her way to attend her weekly sewing class at Pelham’s Community Centre in Kinson.

Marjorie recently took a tumble and now needs a stick to help her get about. Derek, presented her with a bunch of flowers, congratulated her on taking the 3000th trip and wished her well for the future on behalf of all the drivers at NeighbourCar.

Derek, who is also the NeighbourCar treasurer, said, "I well remember taking Marjorie and another lady to Pelham’s some four years ago on the very first NeighbourCar trip that we made - Trip No 0001".

West Parley NeighbourCar is very much appreciated by all the elderly and less mobile residents and helps towards them maintaining a degree of independence in their lives that, without NeighbourCar, they would find difficult.
