A COMMUNITY transport and companion service has opened a new shopfront on Wantage Road in Didcot.

The South Oxfordshire franchise of Driving Miss Daisy was launched in December 2019 by husband-and-wife team Zororo Mubaya and Terence Kavuru to assist anyone of any age who needs a hand.

The company offers assistance of all kinds ranging from help with shopping trips to support at family events or even just spending a couple of hours chatting or playing board games with someone who might spend a lot of time alone. The couple are trained in first aid and have wheelchair accessible vehicles.

Mrs Mubaya said: “With our experience we wanted to take our transferable skills and experiences with working with supported living and social care clients who have a need for the transport and companionship that Driving Miss Daisy can offer. Driving Miss Daisy is often described as ‘family when family can’t be there’. We are really enjoying doing this so far – every day has been different, and we have the pleasure of helping and chatting to people from all walks of life.”

During the coronavirus outbreak the couple have been meticulous about cleaning and have continued to provide the transport service to those most in need.
