The Work of Hospice Ethiopia
The Angel Awards were founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and are co-funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. Since 2011 these annual awards have celebrated the efforts of local people who have saved historic buildings and places.
The awards recognise people who champion their local heritage and share and practice forgotten craft skills. They also celebrate young people, acknowledging their efforts to learn about heritage.
For the 2016 awards they have expanded the award categories to celebrate the efforts of people who go to extraordinary lengths to protect, save and share their local heritage.
The award categories for 2016 are:
Last year The Friends of Forncett St Mary's Church won the award for ‘Best Rescue or Repair of a Historic Place of Worship’. Speaking about the award Graham Prior, chair of the 'Friends of Forncett St Mary's', said ''the award is a fantastic recognition for all the hard work we as a whole group have put in... the hope is that more people from the local community will join and ensure the future of the church and of the group."
