"It’s been a long road"
For anyone on the North West coast who has used our transport2treatment service, the name Trevor Snooks may ring a bell.
Trevor has been behind the wheel as a volunteer driver for 15 years and has transported hundreds of people to their cancer medical appointments over that time.
I had my own journey with cancer and I had just retired from work. At that particular stage the Cancer Council were considering starting the tranport2treament service up. So I said to my wife this could be enough to keep me going whilst I’m retired."
Cancer Council Tasmania Volunteer
Trevor was recently awarded Honorary Life Membership to Cancer Council Tasmania in recognition of his incredible commitment to the organisation and 15 years of volunteer driving. The event, held at the South Burnie Football Club, was attended by dozens of friends, volunteers and Cancer Council Tasmania staff to honour the occasion. Trevor highly recommends volunteering for transport2treatment as it is “a fantastic service and immensely rewarding.”
