Firefly founder Denise Dunn said: “It’s something we have been working towards ever since we got the second bus and it’s fantastic that we will now be able to help even more people including people who live a bit further afield.”

“We are so grateful for people’s support and the Free Press have helped us get the word out, we always have a tremendous response from people to the articles that appear.”

The ‘lifeline’ service, which was set up in 2005 transports patients door to door from their Doncaster homes to Sheffield’s Weston Park hospital for treatment. Denise now says the Firefly express is desperate for more volunteer drivers now they have the third vehicle.

She said: “The Firefly service is growing all the time so we really need more volunteers to get involved.”
