Drive for help

Hills Gazette - - LETTERS -

THE Leukaemia Foun­da­tion is ur­gently call­ing for vol­un­teer driv­ers to help trans­port peo­ple liv­ing with blood can­cer to vi­tal med­i­cal ap­point­ments.

The Leukaemia Foun­da­tion’s much-loved pa­tient trans­port ser­vice has been pro­vid­ing peo­ple with free trans­port for more than two decades. It pro­vides more than 38,000 pa­tient trips each year and last year trav­elled more the 1,557,779km – the equiv­a­lent of trav­el­ling more than 38 times around the world.

Sadly, we have lim­ited vol­un­teers avail­able and there­fore many peo­ple liv­ing with blood can­cers in the lo­cal area are ei­ther not able to ac­cess the trans­port ser­vice or are on long wait lists.

Res­i­dents can help us to con­tinue this vi­tal com­mu­nity ser­vice by pro­vid­ing just a few hours of their time per week, fort­night or per month. Your free time will make a real dif­fer­ence in the day of a per­son liv­ing with blood can­cer. To find out more, call 1800 620 420.
