Andrew has recently been a serving Police officer for Greater Manchester Police in Oldham. His wife Anuaska works for the NHS at the Royal Oldham Hospital and has previous care work experience.
Andrew said, “I really enjoyed my time in the Police, but over the last 4 years, Anuaska and I have lost our parents and previous to this we really struggled to get our parents out and about, my mother was in a wheelchair and suffering with dementia and my father was on walking aids after a hip operation, but they were living apart and there seemed to be no reliable service to use to get them out together especially as we were both working full time and on shifts.”
“It was last January when I personally was off work with covid and came across Driving Miss Daisy and it just struck a cord in every way with me, that night when Anuaska came home I told her I was resigning from the Police and was going to bring the service to our area so other people did not suffer the same issues we had with our parents.”
“The ethos of the company and the caring nature of the work is fantastic and gives you a real sense of pride when you can put a smile on someone’s face. I feel that I am serving my community even more now providing this service than I did in the Police.”
“The community has taken to the service and it is already a valued part of the community, we have plans soon for more vehicles and making the service even better to assist the people who need it most.”
