Droitwich Community Transport scheme gets £200 boost from town's Rotary Club

DROITWICH Community Transport, which takes residents on social trips to encourage social inclusion and prevent loneliness, has received £200 from the town’s Rotary Club.

The latest trip, on Saturday, January 13, saw 15 people taken to The Norbury Theatre’s annual pantomime which this year was Babes in the Wood.

The theatre kindly offered tickets at concessionary prices and donated a hot drink during the interval.

One of the volunteer drivers took the passengers in the community transport minibus.

Those who went were so appreciative and all had a thoroughly good time, joining in with the traditional panto fun, shouting out ‘he’s behind you’ and joining in with the other fun and frolics.

Tonia Enderbury, the head of services at the Droitwich Spa and Rural Council for Voluntary Service, said: “I would like to thank Droitwich Rotary for donating the money to enable us to do this and the Norbury Theatre for supporting us.

“Everyone said they benefited from getting out of the house, meeting new people and having a lovely afternoon.

“We would like to be able to offer more social trips for our passengers so would ask if any other local organisation would like to fund us for this, can they please get in touch with me?”

The service would also like to hear from people interested in using the Droitwich Community Transport scheme which is run by the CVS.
