Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2018: Community Care North Bucks (CCNB) has been awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2018. CCNB was set up by the Parish Church in 1986 running a small hospital car service with three voluntary drivers. It has since developed and as well as a Hospital Car Service, with 39 drivers, it runs support groups for Adult, Young and Ex Carers. It is now an independent charity but a number of the church family are very much part of the 75 volunteers involved.  We are always looking for additional volunteers, especially car drivers, so if you would like to think about joining us do speak to me Sue Watkins ( 01280 816266)
