“The FDM Social Club trips have a positive impact on my life as they allow me to lead a more active social life with pleasant company, the drivers are safe, helpful, friendly and considerate. When I went on the trip which was organised to Bridlington it allowed me to visit my ill sister of 90 years which was wonderful. “

“During the last 18 months I thought I would have no more life, but meeting Elaine and joining the FDM Social Club I am beginning at 90 years to have one. I used to be so lonely and unhappy but not now thanks to lovely people who care. To be able to go out to places including the cinema and Theatre which I have not been to for years is smashing, it’s a benefit to go out on an evening to the theatre when you have been on your own all day.”

“The FDM trips get me out of the house and socialising they give me something to look forward to, they are a Life Line.”

“I have arthritis in my neck, shoulders feet & hands. This shopping trip is a great help as I get door-to-door service. I’d be lost without it. I couldn’t carry my shopping before but it’s great that I can now get help with it.”

“Enjoyed the show very much, definitely wouldn’t go out in the evenings on my own especially in winter, Thank You”

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ron Frost for the Community Transport Project and how this really does benefit our disabled charity. As a group of various ages and disabilities it is increasingly difficult to find transportation that is suitable reliable, trustworthy and affordable. FDM fills the void with a service which is all the above and more.”

Maltings Court & Ingle Court Sheltered Housing
“Maltings Court and Ingle Court  have been using the facilities at FDM for a number of years.   The staff, are always friendly and nothing appears to be too much trouble for them to deal with.  My tenants enjoy the door to door trips and the added assistance of the drivers helping them on and off the bus.  This is very important to them because many struggle on normal buses.  This reliable service is the only one that my clients will go on because they trust and have confidence in the staff to have a safe and enjoyable journey. It is a fantastic service, which is run by fantastic people who obviously care and enjoy what they do.  We hope that the service continues for many years to come.”

Cleveleys Court Sheltered Housing
“At Cleveleys Court we have enjoyed the use of the FDM transport service for some time now. The service enables our residents who are disabled to have an outing once a month, which would otherwise be very difficult and expensive. The service prevents our residents becoming isolated and gives them the opportunity for social interaction, and a greater quality of life.”

Rothwell and District Seniors Club
“Many of our members are incapacitated with different disabilities, who welcome the opportunity of ‘getting out of the house’ and, who would not be able to without the help of the FDM minibus and volunteer driver. This is a crucial service that FDM provide and for which our group is eternally grateful.”

Larchfield Care Home
“Our residents use the FDM minibus on a regular basis for trips/days out. Without the service it would restrict our residents to a point when many would never venture out. It is a project to which they rely on and look forward to.”
