A TAXI firm is offering free transport to and from vaccination centres to the elderly and vulnerable.

Delta Taxis in Burnley has announced they will be offering the free trips to people who would otherwise be unable to get to a vaccination centre.

A spokesperson for Delta Taxis said: "As the enormous task of vaccination begins we would like to once again offer services to our wonderful community.

"We have in place free transport to/from vaccination centres for all those that otherwise may forego the vaccination because they cant attend using the usual public transport and/or lack of funding."

The free vaccine transport will be available for people in Burnley and Pendle and ask that people contact them well in advance to organise their journey.

The vaccination hub, which has opened at the Blackburn Cathedral will invite people within a 45 minute radius to come and get their vaccine.

In March last year, drivers from Delta helped NHS staff get shopping after many were left without vital supplies for themselves and their families after panic buyers emptied supermarket shelves.
