Volunteer to Drive 


CarOne of our major achievements of 2014 was the purchase of a car. 

We have a team of trained volunteer drivers who provide a free transport service to St. Luke’s hospital on a daily basis. If you’re undergoing Cancer Treatment we can help ease some of the strain of travelling to and from your appointments at St. Luke’s hospital. Cancer treatment involves a great deal of travelling. Patients are already dealing with the physical and emotional strains of a cancer diagnosis – don’t let your appointments be a worry to you or your family just contact Arklow Cancer Support Group. 


24 hours notice is required for this service.
