Dear Members,

You have been keeping us very busy again this year – our 27th anniversary!

Can you help us find more drivers!

With demand from you our users on the increase, we really need more volunteer drivers. If you know of anyone who could give some of their time, do please put them in contact with us.

New buses

We are very happy to have been able to upgrade our two smaller buses, this June, with greater comfort and convenience for you. Many of you will have noticed! Thanks to Amersham and Chesham Lions Club for their contribution.

Fundraising and Donations

We rely very much on fundraising and donations – and if any of you feel you could help with a donation it would be very much appreciated.

As part of our fundraising campaign, we were a strong presence in the Chesham Carnival this June, a great team effort with some of our drivers taking part.

Changes to your circumstances?

Do please remember to let us know if you have any changes, such as mobility aids, phone numbers, etc.

New CDAR Lottery – 100 Club

We have an exciting new CDAR Lottery starting 1st September 2016, with the first prize draw set to take place on 10th December 2016. For as little as £2 a month (£2 per go, but please have as many goes as you wish), every 3 months we will have a prize draw where you can win cash prizes. With 100 members you’d be in with the chance of winning 1st prize of £80 and 2nd prize of £40!

Forms are included with this newsletter if you would like take part.
