TWO volunteer drivers are urgently needed to help out a charity.

Contact the Elderly Havant hosts tea parties once a month for pensioners in the town and picks them up from their homes.

Suzan Hyland, the charity’s national volunteer support officer, said: ‘This lovely local group has six to eight isolated elderly guests who really look forward to their party Sunday.

‘We take out to tea once a month, 12 months a year local isolated elderly people, 75 and over. Our local hosts welcome the elderly guests and drivers into their homes for a tea party.

‘This regular monthly outing makes a huge difference to the life of an isolated person and gives them something to look forward to.’

If you would like to volunteer as a driver call 020 7881 2361 or email suzan.hyland@contact-the-elderly.org.uk.
