After clocking up enough kilometres to drive around Australia almost 23 times, Dungog Shire Palliative Care Volunteers have a new vehicle to transport patients and they can’t wait to hit the road.

Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation provided a $32,000 grant to replace the organisation’s ageing vehicle, which was limiting the daily transport service and forcing volunteers to fund trips using their own vehicles.

Dungog Shire Palliative Care Volunteers transport coordinator Lyn Moseley said there was an increasing need within the area to provide transport support for patients diagnosed with a life threatening illness.
