Hi, my name is Therese Lloyd, the very proud owner of the Driving Miss Daisy Wellington City franchise, which has recently been split into two territories, due to the phenomenal growth in the area.
Although born in Northern Ireland, I have lived in Wellington for most of my life, apart from when I embarked on my big OE, where I met my Cockney husband Colin, who sadly passed away four years ago, and we have two fabulous daughters, Kasey and Sian. I live in the Johnsonville area, where I grew up and also raised my family, whilst I was working full time in the city.
My work life over the past 40 years has been varied, having mainly worked for large corporations in the early days, then with smaller organisations, as an Accounts and Payroll Administrator.
When the opportunity to own this Driving Miss Daisy franchise presented itself, it was as if ‘all the stars had aligned’ for me as I honestly couldn’t think of anything else I would rather be doing at this time of my life than giving something positive back to my wider community and making a real difference in people’s lives, while having fun and making new friends along the way.
The training, vetting and qualifications that I, and my drivers, require to become “Daisies” ensure that our clients are in safe, reliable care when their own friends or family can’t be there for them. We are a pre-booked service and offer a friendly and caring companion driving service which helps to give our elderly and disabled clients back some independence and this, in turn, helps enrich their lives. We love taking them on outings, helping them with their shopping, assisting with hospital appointments, whatever makes life easier for each client. We’re there for you.
Please contact us for a quote and a chat about what we can do for you or your loved one.
I look forward to meeting you.
