CHORISTERS from Buckden are featuring in a special Christmas video created by Calor.

The energy provider has created a warm and engaging social video focusing on the many different projects its annual funding scheme has helped over the past two years.

Local stars from Buckden Singers feature in the video, covering the '12 Days of Christmas' in part to say thank you to everyone who voted for them to receive a £1,000 grant from the Calor Rural Community Fund, which funded a new stage piano for use in their performances.

Founded in 2007 by a small group of friends, the Buckden Singers Choir has expanded to around 50 members from Buckden and its surrounding areas.

The aim of the Calor Rural Community Fund is to give off-grid communities the chance to gain grants for projects that will improve local life. With a total fund of £50,000, this year the scheme offered funding for 21 different projects, with prize pots ranging from £1,000 up to £5,000.

The annual scheme returns in spring 2019, bigger and better than ever. To find out more and to register your interest visit:
