Volunteers help at Driver Reviver

GERRY Morrisey knows all to well the look of a tired driver who needs a break along their journey.

Mr Morrisey has volunteered at the Gladfield Driver Reviver site for about 15 years.

He was joined on Thursday by Mick Dwan as they began to help drivers along the first day of their Easter holiday journeys.

“If you see some of the people who come in here, they definitely need a break. Some are travelling a very long distance and need a refresh,” Mr Morrisey said.

Driver Reviver opened for about five hours on the day before holidays officially began, and already 18 travellers had signed the book, with some travellers from as far as London.

“We would like to see more people stop and have a break, especially if they are on a long drive,” Mr Morrisey said.

Two travellers, Tony and Lauris Henderson, on their way to Allora stopped off on Thursday before completing their journey after travelling from the Gold Coast.

“It’s always a good break along the road,” Mrs Henderson said. “I think Driver Reviver is excellent.”
