The Marlborough Sounds Community Vehicle Trust was set up in 2016 when it became apparent that people from Picton and the Inner Sounds area, who could not drive for whatever reason, were having difficulty attending outpatient appointments in Nelson. Initially we had no car, no drivers and no money but with the help of local sponsors, especially Omega Rental Cars we were able to carry our first passenger in October of that year. Our Sponsor list is long but without their help and understanding none of this could have happened. It very quickly became obvious that the residents of Blenheim were in a similar situation and in November that year 4 passengers from Blenheim went to Nelson.
