Local Taxi Driver Offers Help For Isolated Vulnerable and Elderly
Christopher Riley of MVC Taxis in Mansfield has been working as a Hackney Carriage driver for the last few years and works with a number of care homes in the area.
Following yesterday's announcement by the Government about the elderly having to self isolate for around 12 weeks, Christopher has offered his services to not only the care homes he usually works with but also any other vulnerable people who may need assistance. He's doing it free of charge. Coronavirus is having such a huge effect on all parts of everyday life and people may need help getting to the shops, the doctors or pharamcy.
Christopher says, "The vehicle is deep-cleaned four times a day, so all precautions are being taken over the current dilemma we are all facing."
He went on to talk about the effects COVID-19 is having on his business, "normally I do 80 to 120 miles a day in work and private bookings, but since last Thursday the average I have done each day is 30 to 35 miles, the drop off in business is massive."
If you are vulnerable and/or elderly Christopher's services are free for you to use, to get in touch call him on 07740 58 73 58.
