Volunteer: Darcy Hogue

Meet Darcy Hogue.  Darcy started with us at AgeConnect when we were looking for volunteer drivers for our vans in a Community Transport Trial. Darcy had driving experience and we thought he would be perfect for the role.


Since then we have discovered Darcy is a real people person with the ability to strike up conversation with anyone and put them at ease very quickly. So, rather than become a regular driver for us, he has become one of our star van hosts.

Darcy is also very quick to put his hand up to help out at other AgeConnect events (including our AgeConnect Champion Awards), to do first aid training or to email us with a great idea for a Blokes Day Out. We are very lucky to have Darcy on our volunteer team. someone like Darcy who truly appreciates the company of older people and enables them to feel valued and share their amazing stories.

If you would like to become one of our valued volunteers, take a look at our get involved  page and get in touch.
