Why I Volunteer

“Volunteer driving is a lifeline for me. My wife died last summer, and for a time I was lonely and bereft. I was welcomed with open arms by Vasa and I now drive three times a week. This is a vital service for the community which has made a huge difference to my life too!”

John Jackson, Volunteer Driver
