A Chance to Thank Our 'Car Link Môn' Volunteers


'National Volunteers’ Week’ is an opportunity every year to thank volunteers for their valuable contribution and to encourage more people to get involved. To celebrate ‘Volunteers’ Week’ this year (June 1-7), Medrwn Môn organised a visit to Tacla Taid – the Anglesey Transport Museum near Newborough – to thank the ‘Car Linc Môn’   volunteers for their contribution. ‘Car Linc Môn’ is a community transport service on Anglesey which is available for people over 50 or with a disability, who have no other means of making essential journeys. ‘Car Linc Môn’ drivers take people to hospital appointments, to the doctor, dentist, to shop, or to visit relatives or friends who are ill.

During the visit to Tacla Taid there was a chance to walk back in time and see over 100 classic vehicles dating from the 1920s, as well as agricultural and military vehicles, motorbikes, tractors, aeroplanes and lots more!  At the end of the afternoon everyone enjoyed a tasty afternoon tea at Caffi Nain.

Bethan Lloyd Jukes, who is the ‘Car Linc Môn’ co-ordinator for Medrwn Môn said: “Community transport enables older    people to remain independent and more able to carry on with their lives by keeping them engaged with their community and being able to access relevant services. The Car Linc drivers do an excellent job - they are sympathetic towards the needs of users, and our users trust the volunteers.”
