Ayrshire Cancer Support

Extra Mile for Christmas

The project is to secure 100,00 miles of patient transport journeys. This is to keep up with predicted future demand. We have over 45 volunteers who use their own cars to take cancer patients to their treatment appointments, we do approximately 1500 lifesaving journeys a month.

Situation

The project aims is to provide people living with cancer reassurance that they will be able to attend their cancer treatments appointments. Without our transport services many people would go without, especially older people, those living on their own, or people in rural areas. It really is a lifeline to patients and it takes away part of their worry and concern around attending appointments. We do everything for them and pick them up from their front door, wait, and take them home again.

Solution

There are more & more people each month being diagnosed with cancer in Ayrshire, and it will continue to grow exponentially. This project would ensure we can continue to deliver our patient transport service for another 100,000 miles. This is a vital free service that we supply.
