Volunteering Gold Coast Transport Services have been providing transportation for seniors and people with disabilities for over 20 years. With the help of their volunteer drivers and carers, they are able to provide a door to door pick up service and customised pick up times to fit their client’s needs.
John Flaherty has been a volunteer driver with Volunteering Gold Coast Transport Services for over two years now, and during that time has found joy in helping members of the community and hearing the stories they share with him.
“I volunteer because I love to help others. My role as a driver is not only to just drive people to and from appointments, it is also about talking and listening to our clients,” he said.
They share the most incredible stories about their lives with you.”
He encourages everyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer to take the next step.
“It is very rewarding to assist people by donating your time,” he said.
“Most people are very grateful for the service and tell you so nearly every day.”
