CHRISTMAS CLOSURES - IMPORTANT
The Wheel of Care will close at noon on Friday, 21st December 2018 and will re-open at 10am on Wednesday, 2nd January 2019. If you need help between 22nd December - 3rd January, please ring before noon on Friday, 21st December so that we can try and find a volunteer to help. We're very sorry but it will not be possible to find volunteer drivers for same-day journeys on 2nd January when we re-open so please try and think ahead.

MESSAGE FROM A CLIENT
It is always lovely to hear from our clients! We recently received the following message from a client whom we have been helping for the past year or so:
"Many, many thanks to West Horsley Wheel of Care for organising so efficiently my car lifts to the Scrabble sessions and Film Club. It has made such a difference to my life this year when I have been unable to drive and enabling me to meet people and start a new pastime. Also, thanks for the cups of tea and delicious cake. Everything much appreciated."
THE QUEEN'S AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE
It was announced on 2nd June 2015 that the Wheel of Care had been honoured with The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK and the equivalent of an MBE for voluntary groups. Please click on the link immediately below The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service logo to the right for a copy of the press release regarding this prestigious award.
SNOW/ICE AND THE CLUBS
If there is snow/ice on the ground, it is highly likely that all Wheel of Care clubs will be cancelled. If you are unsure whether a club is going ahead, please ring the Duty Officer on 01483 281703 (Monday-Friday 10am-noon).
