The Queens Award for Voluntary Service was created by The Queen in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community. It is the MBE for volunteer groups
The award was presented by Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire.
Sir Henry said: “Community Care North Bucks is a lifeline for the young and old, the sick, vulnerable and lonely who need help and support. Without it much desperate need would be unmet. The remarkable aspect is the amount and range of the care it undertakes.
“Since the awards were first created in 2002 just 30 organisations have received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services so congratulations to all those at Community Care North Bucks for their hard work and dedication to helping some of those most in need in their local community.”
Keith Croxton, Chair of CCNB, said “This is a remarkable achievement and speaks volumes for the committed and dedicated work of all our 75 volunteers, serving the local community week in week out.“
