Calendar News received a national award from Cancer Research UK today in recognition of our outstanding contribution to the cause. The charity’s annual Flame of Hope Awards recognise the remarkable support from people from all walks of life.

Calendar scooped the Media Supporter of the Year accolade, beating off stiff competition from across the UK. Lisa Adlam picked up the award this lunchtime at a special ceremony in London hosted by Cancer Research UK’s Chairman, Michael Pragnell.
