This service provides free transport for seven patients 260 days of the year to Oncology Treatment at UPMC Hospital, Whitfield, Waterford on a completely voluntary basis. Transport is provided at no cost to the patient and relies on voluntary contribution to cover transport replacement, motor tax, insurance and maintenance. All Administration, including Driving is done on a totally voluntary basis, nobody is paid, so a very worthy cause. So all monies donated and collected at our 4K on Wednesday 17th February will go to this very worthy cause, so spread the word.
