When I retired I wanted to give something back to the Hospice - driving the patients has made my retirement feel worthwhile. I meet a wide range of people when I'm driving them to and fro - it gives me a great deal of satisfaction, and I feel privileged to be able to help them. And I like listening to them talk about their life time stories.

Working alongside the Hospice's friendly staff and other volunteers I've made new friends and learnt some new skills. I could pilot planes (I joined the RAF when I was 16) but learning to read Norfolk street maps was a new skill I had to master!
