TRIP: a helping hand to get housebound local people out and about

TRIP is a group of local people organising and co-ordinating outings for those who are older, have disabilities, mental health problems etc. and who would be isolated and unable to get out without our support. We use the accessible Plusbus so everyone can travel. Volunteers are available to push wheelchairs, give a hand or provide company.

One resident who uses the bus said “ Without this bus I would not be able to get out and about. I would be stuck indoors. The volunteers are very helpful and friendly”

We have regular outings and some we have already done are: Gosport; Winchester; Southsea, Weymouth and Salisbury.

We do a regular trip out to Morrison’s for shopping, which allows you a chance to get some of the heavier items which you can’t normally manage.

If you would like to come along the prices vary depending on destination, contact Diane on 07775835253 or email tripthornhill@gmail.com.
