North Berwick Volunteer Car Scheme is seeking drivers who can offer lifts to people needing to access local services.

This includes visits to the dentist or shops or, as a result of the Edington Hospital’s closure, trips to East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington or Belhaven Hospital in Dunbar.

Volunteers can help as much or as little as they are able to and will receive a mileage allowance.

Bex MacRobert, scheme co-ordinator, said: “North Berwick Volunteer Car Scheme needs more volunteers, we have so many elderly locals struggling to get to medical appointments, we need your help. If you have time to volunteer even just a few hours a month, get in touch.”
