'The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service'

"The work of these volunteers has made a significant and valuable difference to the lives of others. The Queen's Award gives national recognition to extraordinary acts of voluntary service and the accolade is only given out in exceptional circumstances.

These volunteers are extremely passionate about what they do, and their hard work and dedication is an inspiration to us all. These commendations are so very well deserved, and I am pleased to see the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service recipients gain the recognition they so rightfully deserve."

Our Service

Julie Neil Rings The Cancer Bell at the Freeman Cancer Care Centre

"At a time of much worry the Cancer Cars team took away so much of the stress with their invaluable service. I will be forever grateful to them all."
- Julie, July 2021

Proudly celebrating 30 years of service to our community, The Berwick & District Cancer Support Group, more familiarly known locally as 'Berwick Cancer Cars', was founded in 1992 by a group of people who through experience knew how difficult it was to get to main hospitals from our area for cancer appointments.

Our group is run on a totally voluntary basis and many of our members have experienced living alongside cancer in one way or another. All our volunteers are committed to keeping the service we provide available to all who may need it. 

We are a local registered charity supported by our fundraising and donations.

Visit our About Us page to learn more about how our charity began and our exciting plans for the future.

Your generous support is more important than ever,

"The Berwick & District Support Group has grown to be one of the finest examples of a community-based charity in the country."
Cllr Jackson, Chair of Trustees
