Charities cash in on Living Advent Calendar

THE proceeds of the third Living Advent Calendar in Henley have been presented to four charities.

The Henley and Peppard branch of the Royal British Legion, the Regatta for the Disabled, Henley Youth Centre and Oceans Project all received a share of the £4,054 raised at the 24 performances in December.

Calendar chairwoman Julie Perigo said: “It was very successful this year. We were getting audiences of around 100 every night, which is a huge improvement on the first two years.” The calendar takes the form of a music, dance, poetry or comedy performance, usually with a festive theme, at a variety of venues.

A collection is taken each night and more money is raised with a raffle and the sale of beanie hats.
