A COMMUNITY bus run by volunteers is appealing for help.

Wyvern Community Transport needs a volunteer passenger assistant.

A “kind and patient’’ person is required to assist elderly passengers on the diala- ride service for residents of Rochford, Rayleigh and Castle Point, helping to collect clients from home, ensuring they are comfortable and sometimes loading their shopping on to the vehicle.

The group says the role would suit someone with an interest in the elderly, who has good communication skills and an understanding of what difficulties the elderly have.
