The 2018 Bendigo Health Christmas Appeal has been launched. All funds raised from this year’s Appeal will go directly towards purchasing a new patient transport bus driven by our volunteers.

The Bendigo Health Volunteer Express supports more than 300 patients who travel to their appointments each month. The bus will provide a service to those from our residential care facilities who need to attend medical appointments at the hospital and those far from home, staying at the Bendigo Health patient accommodation without their usual form of transport.

The Volunteer Express is more than a bus, it is a friendly smile or a reassuring chat from a volunteer who gives up their time to go the extra mile for patients in their time of need.

The total cost of the bus will be $70 000 and we are hoping the community can help us to keep the wheels turning for our Volunteer Express Bus service.
