URGENTLY NEEDED: Volunteer drivers to deliver Pulse Oximeters for the NHS! 

Do you want to support the NHS and your community? 
Do you drive and have your own vehicle?
Volunteers are urgently needed to drop off Pulse Oximeters to patients at home. These are for patients being released from hospital who are recovering at home. 

What is the role?
Volunteers will be picking up Pulse Oximeters from the Community CVS Boulevard Centre (BB1 1EZ) and dropping them off to households in the Blackburn with Darwen area.

How many hours will it involve?
You will need to be available to be put on a rota for a minimum of half a day a week and would be called as and when required, within your agreed time slot. Start date as soon as possible.

What will I need?

The Super Slow Way is a cultural development programme that covers 20 miles of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal corridor stretching through East Lancashire from Blackburn in the west, through Hyndburn and Burnley, and ending in Pendle in the east.

They have engaged BDP (internationally renowned Landscape Architects) to do this piece of work and would like to engage with the communities closest to the canal to make sure that their needs and views are incorporated in the designs.

As such, they are keen to get in contact with community groups in the Higher Audley, Daisyfield and Intack areas in order that they are adequately consulted and represented through this process.

If you operate in one of these neighbourhoods and would like to have your say, please get in touch with Vladimir Pejcinovic.
