Churchill Volunteer Driver Scheme

Information for Drivers and Passengers

This is a self-help scheme to assist those without transport to get to the opticians, dentist, medical appointments or hospital visits. The service is not available for shopping trips or social purposes.

All information received must be treated as confidential.

Since drivers are providing their time and vehicles voluntarily, passengers are requested to offer reimbursement towards the cost of petrol and any out of pocket expenses such as parking fees.

For guidance, the following donation are suggested for typical journeys. These have increased on 1st of January 2023 to take account of recent increases in cost.


Bristol Royal Infirmary  £15
Southmead Hospital  £20
Bath Royal United Hospital  £25

Yatton  £5
Weston Hospital  £10
