Gwentdefibbers offers support to a lot of people over a very large area – the whole of Gwent – and sometimes these places are quite isolated.
The nature of the medical problems that we face means that it can be difficult to make long term travel plans because for many of us we will not be sure if we have to surrender our driving licences….again!
For non drivers the thought of using unreliable public transport can be very off putting especially with the dark days / nights and cold weather arriving soon.
As you may be aware the group was recently awarded funding from the Lottery and the BHF. When we submitted the applications we explained that we wanted to encourage as many people as possible to attend the meetings and meet others with similar problems and this would mean supplying transport for those that required it.
The award was granted……
If you have a relative or neighbour that is prepared to bring you and take you home KEEP THE RECEIPT and we can reimburse you on the day.
If you are unable to get a lift and need transport PLEASE let us know. We will be able to organise it even if it is for 1 person or more but obviously we need to know numbers and postcodes.
Our next meeting takes place in Llanfoist hall on Saturday, 19th November from 1pm until 3pm. Please let us know if you require transport by either phoning one of the numbers in the contact section or emailing to gwentdefibbersAThotmail.co.uk change the AT for a @.
PLEASE let us know by Monday 7th November so that we have plenty of time to arrange it.
We hope as many people as possible take advantage of this because if the money is NOT used for this purpose it has to be returned, hence the importance of receipts.
