Young Cancer Patients Receive Complimentary Driving Lessons from driveJohnson’s

National Driving School Launches Drive Against Cancer Scheme, Offering Free Driving Lessons to Young People Battling Cancer

Milton Keynes – Tuesday 23 April, 2024 – driveJohnson’s, a leading national driving school, has recently announced the launch of its new Drive Against Cancer Scheme. This initiative aims to provide free driving lessons to young individuals who are currently battling cancer.

The driving school’s Director, Anthony Johnson, was inspired to create this scheme after losing his father to cancer and learning of his mother’s terminal diagnosis earlier this year. Being personally affected by cancer, Johnson is determined to support cancer patients and their families in any way possible. He recently completed the London Marathon and raised over £4500 for Young Lives Vs Cancer, a charity that offers invaluable support to children, young people, and their families during and after a cancer diagnosis. However, Johnson wanted to do more, which led to the creation of the Drive Against Cancer Scheme.

Through this scheme, Young Lives Vs Cancer will identify a young person with cancer who would benefit from the free driving lessons and put them forward to driveJohnson’s. The selected individual will then receive up to 50 hours of free driving lessons from one of driveJohnson’s driving instructors in their local area.

The first beneficiary of the Drive Against Cancer Scheme is 18-year-old Danika Hill, who is based in Milton Keynes. When she learned that she would be receiving free driving lessons, Hill expressed her shock and gratitude, stating, “I was shocked. I couldn’t believe anyone would want to give me free driving lessons, let alone 50 hours of them! […] I couldn’t find the words, I felt so thankful.”

driveJohnson’s is closely monitoring Hill’s progress and hopes to expand the Drive Against Cancer Scheme to more young individuals as it gains momentum. To follow Hill’s inspiring story, interested individuals can visit: Drive Against Cancer: Danika’s Story.
