The SOUNDS OF THE GALLERY BAND is a group of young people with a range of Additional Needs, including physical disability, Learning Disability and autism. Over the past five years they have worked together to create and play their own songs and music. The band has performed at the Bearsden Festival and the Big Helix Picnic Festival in Falkirk. The group requires an enthusiastic person to help set up and maintain their equipment (including electric guitars, keyboards, drums and vocals), and assist the group members to rehearse and perform safely and effectively.
Are you interested in becoming a volunteer driver? Do you enjoy driving and helping others? Do you own your own car? We have an exciting new opportunity for drivers to take guests to our friendship groups in Hamilton, Uddingston, Cambuslang, Rutherglen and East Kilbride.
Most of the groups run on a fortnightly basis (a couple are weekly) and last for 1 and a half hours. Transport would need to be provided both ways. The drivers would be invited to stay at the group and enjoy a cuppa or simply come back at the end of the group. Travel expenses would be reimbursed and training would be provided. There would be no expectation of manual handling although walking aids would be required to be lifted into the boot.
Gala Wheels provides affordable and accessible transport for the disadvantaged and/or rurally excluded sensory impaired and elderly residents of Central Borders. Volunteer drivers are available for any client subject to availability and make a big difference to some of our users who are lone pensioners with no family or friends to help them remain socially included.
We have three vehicles - an accessible 11 seater minibus and two smaller 5-6 seater vehicles specially adapted for wheelchair use. We take groups and individuals from throughout Central Borders for outings, for shopping, lunch clubs, the theatre, swimming, rugby, riding for the disabled, visiting friends and family, hospital appointments, GP appointments or whatever they need.
Volunteers can opt to drive the smaller 5/6 seater vehicles only, or all three vehicles including 11 seater minibus. You can drive as often as suits your circumstances.
We need the help of a volunteer driver with their own car to help us collect donations of ICT equipment. This role is vital to our work in getting thousands of computers into African schools, enabling otherwise waste computers to have a second life in a classroom.

To support us in this role you must have access to your own vehicle, have a valid UK driving license and be able to lift 20kg.
