A dedicated local woman has stepped down from a busy volunteering role after 26 years.
Elaine Bridge volunteered for GoCo as a carer from 1994, working alongside her husband Alex for a large part of those years. Mr Bridge worked as a driver for the organisation, and Mrs Bridge as a carer.
Mrs Bridge said her favourite thing about volunteering for GoCo was simply helping other people.
"Being able to help people when they were really in trouble like a man having a heart attack. I know it doesn't sound like a highlight but it was reinforcing the reason we were volunteering," she said.
"It's the pleasure and the certain amount of satisfaction that you were helping people and putting something back into the community."
One of the large things that changed in the two decades was the transport. Volunteers first used their own cars to take clients to various places.
"We were reimbursed so much a kilometre - that was in 1993 - and then we graduated to [Gunnedah Community Transport Service] as it was known then. They brought their own vehicles," Mrs Bridge said.
"Then they went to the [Mercedes-Benz] Sprinters, which were a lot bigger and had wheelchair access, which the old vehicles didn't have."
While she'll be relaxing a little bit more now, Mrs Bridge isn't finished with her volunteering days entirely yet.
She volunteers for Mackellar Care Services' aged care unit, and has been doing that for 10 years in the community transport sector.
She also visits Gunnedah Baptist Community Preschool once a week for 'sharing time', where she talks and tells stories to the children.
Mrs Bridge encouraged other locals to use some of their free time to volunteer for GoCo.
"Sometimes you get more out of it than what you put in, but I think you have to have the right attitude to do it. It's not for the money, but it's the feeling of 'I've helped somebody else,'" she told the NVI.
"It's been a great experience, I would not have missed it for anything and I would really encourage everybody, especially younger people, to get on board.
"If we don't get the drivers and carers then we'll lose the service and that will be a tragedy for Gunnedah."
