The Christmas cards have been printed and are now on sale at the Tourist Information Centre at the Old Gaol.

The packs of six cards include two of each design and cost £4.

Proceeds from the sale of the cards will go to the Mayor’s Charities, Project Street Life and Community Care North Bucks, which includes Buckingham & Winslow Young Carers (YC2), the Adult Carers Support Group, Open House and the Hospital Car Service.

The competition was sponsored by local businesses BCQ Print, which printed the cards, Black Dog Design, which designed them and the Little Buckingham Clinic, meaning all of the money raised from the sale of each pack will go to the Mayor's Charities.
