Royal British Legion supports Community Cars scheme

Story posted on

Frome Branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) has recently helped out Frome Community Cars by providing them with holders and lanyards for their drivers’ identification cards.

Frome Community Cars is a sustainable Frome-led initiative, where volunteer drivers use their own cars to take passengers to appointments in the Frome area. There are no criteria for passengers to register, there is a regulated fee, that can be subsidised up to 50% for those with a valid bus pass, and the drivers can claim for their fuel used on a mileage basis.

Recently a new coordinator, Morag Stuart, took over and as well as spending time to promote the scheme and recruit new drivers and passengers, she has been ensuring all the procedures used to protect everybody are valid and up to date. 

The drivers needed to be issued with personal identification that could be worn on a lanyard.  The RBL was approached and asked if they were able to help.  It was discussed at the November meeting held at Frome Rugby Club, and everyone agreed it was a worthwhile community scheme that deserved support.

If you would like more information on either registering as a passenger, helping as a driver or information about the RBL, contact the numbers below.
