We are especially looking for people from Squirrel Cove and Whaletown, though drivers from all areas are welcome. It could be either occasional, or regular, depending on the time you have to offer.

I am happy to offer up rides when I am free. I am also a huge computer geek and know tech and have taught basic internet, computer use before.

Computer savvy I am not !
Maybe Iíll sit in with that other senior when they find their helper ? I use an iPad, but probably need the help as much as they do !

But I would enjoy helping out with driving occasionally if and when I can. Iíll say no, without guilt, when I or our car are already busy.
