Hi, my name is Leigh and together with Chris, my husband, we are the proud owners of the Driving Miss Daisy Cashmere franchise.
I have a grown up son Daniel and a very friendly dog, Bruno. I grew up in Christchurch and have lived here most of my adult life working as a Home Economics Teacher and in Care and Support roles. My mother lived well into her nineties and in her later life almost completely lost her sight and suffered from Dementia. I learnt from her how even a small thing like taking her for a drive to get an ice cream, which she loved, brightened her life. After leaving teaching, I saw a daisy car go by while walking Bruno, after researching it further I decided that it was a job that would really suit me. I was a driver in the Cashmere franchise for several months and found it to be everything I thought it would be. I enjoyed it so much that when the opportunity came up to buy the franchise I persuaded Chris that we really had to do it !
Driving Miss Daisy can be used in many ways. We can take you shopping, to medical appointments, visiting friends or family or your hair appointment, a drive in the country, School drop off and pick up and and pets to the vet. We can organise trips with you and others to special places and accompany you as well if you require it. Our drivers are all police vetted, qualified and trained to provide the services that our clients require in a caring and supportive manner.
We are a personalised companion driving service which is pre-booked and pre-quoted. Driving Miss Daisy is an ACC accredited provider and Total Mobility Cards are accepted.
Please call me today to discuss your individual needs. I look forward to meeting you soon.
