Many clients will ask how much should I give? As a charity, we do not charge for our services but do rely on client donations to cover our running costs, which consist mainly of petrol money for our drivers of 45p per mile. The driver can give clients an idea of the mileage for their trip but the actual donation is at the client’s discretion.
If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be able to claim some or all of your travel costs from the hospital you are attending. Called the “Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme” information is available on the NHS website.
