Hospice calls for drivers

A Leeds hospice is appealing for Jewish volunteer drivers. Mike Garnett, spokesman for Sue Ryder Care Wheatfields Hospice said that a shortage of volunteers means that the hospice has to pay for taxis to take patients to and from its day unit. “We prefer patients to be collected from home by trained volunteers. We would love to have more people from the Jewish community to help.” More information on 0113 278 7249.
