Calendar’s award hope

THE Henley Living Advent Calendar has been nominated for two awards.

THE Henley Living Advent Calendar has been nominated for two awards.

It could receive a Big Society Award, set up by David Cameron in 2010, and a Towns Alive Award, run by the Action for Market Towns. Both awards recognise initiatives that promote communities.

Organisers of the calendar, now in its third year, expect to find out if they have been shortlisted in a few weeks’ time. Last year, the event raised more than £4,300 for three charities with performances each evening between December 1 and 24 at a range of town centre venues.

Meanwhile, organisers are looking for venues, partners and performers for this year.

Founder Julie Perigo, who chairs the Henley Partnership, said: “There are still dates available for suitable venues and for talented local performers.”
