Funding shock

It has come to my notice that Northumberland County Council is thinking of withdrawing funding for the RVS Getabout scheme.

This scheme allows those less able to get to appointments, etc, using volunteer drivers, at a time when we are being told how many elderly people are suffering from loneliness due to being trapped in their homes not been able to afford taxi fare.

I think this is disgusting and should be rethought. The amount involved cannot be that great and should be borne in order to give hope to others.
