Testimonials

I am enclosing a cheque from the estate of my late father. During the last few years of his life, when he was no longer able to drive, the ring and ride service was of great help to him, one of several services that enabled him to remain living independently for as long as possible.

 

It was such a relief and I do not know how I would have managed otherwise. I am so grateful for such help and kindness in getting to my hospital appointment.

 

Thanks for all your help with transport. The drivers I have met have all enabled me to feel comfortable and confident and I send congratulations to you all on your kindly service.

 

I want to thank you and your drivers for their help and caring duties which I have received – a great organised project!

 

I would like to thank you, and could you pass on my thanks to John Bartlett, for the transport you arranged yesterday. John picked me up at an inhumanly early hour so I was at the RD&E on time. I did not know what time I would be discharged but when I rang him to say I was ready I said I was happy to wait, but he said he would come straight away so I was home just after 2.00pm. I cannot thank you enough. John made a very stressful day far less stressful.

 

I am writing to give a small donation for the wonderful service that you gave my mother during the last year of her life. The Ring and Ride service you provide is a true lifeline especially to all those living in remote communities. The kindness shown by your driver and companionship built with all the ladies were a great source of happiness to my mother. She even learnt how to text while on the bus and I regularly received text messages from her telling me she had gone to Oke. Please continue the wonderful work it makes such a difference to those you help.

 

Thank you very much for all your patience and support over the past weeks and please pass my appreciation on to all your wonderful drivers and helpers. It has been a difficult time for our family and you have all been wonderful and taken some of the pressure from us.

 

We would like to thank you for your kindness and help with our shopping since we have been here, we are going to miss you as you are one in a million, nothing is too much bother.

 

I had to write thanking you and the driver, on behalf of Ring and Ride, for the wonderful service you provided to take my wife and me to RD & E Hospital, Wonford today. The driver was always friendly, helpful and supportive and the journey to and from Exeter was swift and comfortable in your magnificent new people carrier. We are most appreciative of your help in making the arrangments which could not have been bettered.

Thank you for all the help I've received over the last year in arranging lifts to the hospital for me. It is much appreciated. I also look forward to being able to join the Saturday trips when my health has improved. I've enjoyed those that I have been able to go on.

 

I had to write thanking you and Graham, on behalf of Ring and Ride, for the wonderful service you provided to take my wife and me to RD and E Hospital, Wonford today.

Graham was always friendly, helpful and supportive and the journey to and from Exeter was swift and comfortable in your magnificent new people carrier.  We are most appreciative of your help in making the arrangements which could not have been bettered.

 

Being without transport and cut off from bus routes we are sorry that we cannot attend the AGM. We wish to express our appreciation for the work that the OCTG does. We have used the Ring and Ride Service on a regular basis for some time now and wish to thank the cheerful voice at the end of the phone when booking and the drivers who are so kindly and helpful at all times. These trips give us not only the opportunity to shop, but the chance to see a change of scenery and to enjoy the company of other passengers. We would feel very cut off without them.

 

As you know your driver took me, my daughter and wheelchair to the PEOC yesterday. I would just like to say that he was a very pleasant gentleman. As my daughter is hopeless with wheelchairs he was extremely helpful without being fussy. I hope to be lucky enough to use his transport again in the future.
