Charity helps patients during bus strike

Charity Care In Mann is stepping into the breach to help people get to medical appointments during the current bus strike.

Now in its fifth day, the walkout by drivers in a row over terms and conditions has meant many are struggling to get to hospital appointments.

The Department of Health has already appealed to people to let them know if they can’t make it to appointments during the industrial action.

If you can volunteer some time as a driver or telephonist, would like to make a donation to the charity, or need help travelling you can contact Care in Mann on 628500.


Pam Bennett of Care in Mann says getting people where they need to be is something her organisation does all year round:
