Social outings provided by Beverley Community Lift from Holme-upon-Spalding Moor have been given a cash boost by the National Lottery.

A £2,495 grant has been awarded to provide 12 social trips for residents who may be isolated or lonely and find it difficult to access mainstream transport in the village.

The funding will be used to subsidise the low-cost minibus trips, which take place fortnightly, driven by one of the charity’s team of volunteers.

Fiona Wales, Manager of Beverley Community Lift, says: “This is great news for our passengers in Holme-upon-Spalding–Moor. Our trips have taken them to places like Sledmere House and Langlands Garden Centre, providing welcome time away from home and in the company of others.”

Beverley Community Lift provides minibus and car services every weekday, taking people shopping, on day trips or to medical and social appointments, courtesy of volunteers. To join the team of volunteer drivers, please call 01482 868082 or email for details.
