Charity’s free transport service just the ticket

by | 2 October 2022 | Local Charity, Rotherham, Support Group

Weston Park Cancer Charity has launched a new transport service which provides free, safe travel for anyone in Rotherham who needs cancer treatment in Sheffield.

The transport service will run twice daily, Monday to Friday, at 9.00am and 1.30pm from Rotherham United’s AESSEAL New York Stadium on New York Way. To book a seat or to find out more information, call 0114 553 3330 (option two) or email

The new service is being operated by a team of volunteer drivers who generously donate their time to ensure people in Rotherham can access potentially life-saving cancer treatment at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

The charity is “incredibly grateful” for the priceless support of charity patron Darren Baker to get this vital service up and running. Darren has teamed up with local businesses Jenkinson and Co, Green Piling Ltd, Complete Shutter Services Ltd, MIS Group and Ron Hull to generously cover the cost of the purchase of the bus which Weston Park Cancer Charity will use for its Rotherham transport service.

Weston Park Cancer Charity strives to be there, together at every step, for people affected by cancer in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire.

The charity does this by providing support when it’s needed most – including free transport. It also enhances experiences for anyone going through cancer treatment and enables vital research and clinical trials, carried out by leading medical experts in Sheffield, which benefit cancer patients across the region and worldwide.
