A nurse from Raunds was one of 12 Queen’s Nurses to take part in a parade as part of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday celebrations.

Deborah Churcher attended the celebrations on Sunday (June 12) after being chosen as one of 1,500 volunteers from the charities of which the Queen is patron.

She said: “I was privileged to become a Queen’s Nurse last year, and felt highly honoured to be selected as a volunteer.

“It really was the chance of a lifetime and a great opportunity to support the Queen’s Nursing Institute.

“The Queen’s Nurse award is given in recognition of nurses who show the highest standards of practice and patient-centred care.”

The celebrations were mirrored across the country, with towns and villages coming together to hold street parties.
