Ring & Ride
Ring & Ride is a volunteer car service for people who have difficulty getting around. Eligible users can call the service giving 48 hour notice and we'll assign a volunteer driver to take them where they want to go. The service can be used for anything from a short hop across town to the supermarket, to hospital appointments in Hereford, Gloucester and Cheltenham. The service has around 270 users and is delivered by a team of 35 volunteer drivers using their own cars..
We run an imaginative programme of day trips for the elderly and people with mobility problems. Our aim is to provide users with an easily accessible way of getting out of the house, going somewhere new and enjoying the company of like-minded people. Trips include short tours to view the spring flowers and visits to shopping centres and local stately homes.
We have a fleet of three wheelchair-accessible minibuses which we use to provide transport to a range of local community groups serving the elderly, disabled and vulnerable in Ledbury.
We run a weekly Community Bus service from the village of Sledge Green into Ledbury and back
