Volunteer rewarded for work

A GENEROUS man from Nailsea has been rewarded for his voluntary work in the town.

Alan Stacey, aged 81, was presented with a certificate in recognition of his contribution to the group, Nailsea Availables, during a special celebration of volunteering in North Somerset, held at The Barn in Clevedon on June 2.

The voluntary organisation provides transport to hospitals, health centres and clinics for elderly and infirm patients of medical centres in Nailsea.

Alan ran Nailsea Availables for more than 20 years and, after his retirement as senior coordinators at the start of last year, he continued to drive until his 81st birthday.

Despite hanging up his driving gloves, Alan and his wife, Audrey, continue to help the organisation by booking drivers for trips.

Anyone interested in volunteering with Nailsea Availables can call Roger Turner on 01275 855369.
