Opportunity picture
The St. Mark's Lunch Club Drivers and Couriers need to be able to drive the van to pick up their vulnerable members from their homes in the local area and return them home at the end of sessions.

Drivers are needed to help members if they need it and this can be very rewarding. Most members have little chance to leave their home for the rest of the week and this opportunity can be very meaningful to them.
