Rangiora driver needed to assist wheelchair user

Can you work with this UC student? 

“I’m looking for someone with a full license who lives in or near Rangiora. I use a wheelchair and am looking for someone to drive my automatic car to go into the University of Canterbury  on Thursday and/or Friday.

“I’m starting postgraduate study at the University of Canterbury and I require someone (ideally who attends UC and is postgraduate or teaching staff or someone who works in Riccarton) to drive me into campus and back home, each week on a Thursday and/or Friday.

“I use a powered wheelchair and have a modern fully automatic modified car with automatic chair locking system. We would car pool in together and then carpool back to Rangiora after being at Uni. We would do our separate university study or work throughout the day.

“Petrol costs are covered and you would be paid 2 1\2 hours for the assistance I require to travel in my car and the travel time. It would be great to share company and a few laughs while attending university.

“I would work in with your study timetable including going in and leaving university.”
