CHATTERIS Christmas Lights has been awarded £180 by the BT Community Champions scheme thanks to the voluntary work of Len Leney, a BT employee.

The committee was among hundreds of applications and judges were impressed that the money would be used to buy new low-energy light display fittings.

Chris Savill, lights committee chairman, said: “We are very pleased with our BT Community Champions award. As a totally voluntary organisation we depend on the generosity of local supporters to give both time and money to maintain the quality of the annual display, through this award Len Leney has done both.”

C7 signalling engineer Len, who made the application, said: “I have been a volunteer for five years. We welcome any new volunteers to help set up the lights from the middle of October. Any time however great or small is appreciated.”
