A SEATON voluntary car service has seen its busiest month on record.

TRIP Community Transport has already transported around 22 per cent more people to medical appointments for the year so far compared to last year.

And compared to its previous busiest month, numbers are up by 23 per cent.

Neil Hurlock, from TRIP, said: "Our Seaton based volunteers have been extremely busy and, at times, have struggled to cope with the demand. They really have done a wonderful job.

"As there is so much demand for transport to the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital in Exeter, and for other out-of-town appointments, it occasionally makes it harder to cope with the increase in demand for transport to short notice appointments locally."

TRIP said it is always looking for drivers. If you have time to spare, even the occasional couple of hours, contact Neil or Tony at the TRIP office in New Street, Honiton, on (01404) 46529. Mileage expenses are reimbursed.
