As most residents of village will know, the Haddenham Mummers bring a unique form of entertainment to local village events and pubs during the run-up to Christmas.

Their folktale performances can't help but bring a smile to the faces of everyone witnessing the distinctive and quirky form of theatre!

Most importantly, the Haddenham Mummers achieve remarkable levels of fundraising for their chosen charities, and their performances preceding Christmas 2018 raised just under £2,385 -- a truly noteworthy achievement.

On Saturday evening 2nd February, the Mummers got together at the Rising Sun pub to present cheques to this year's charities:

* Helen & Douglas House — £480
* Chinnor & Princes Risbough Railway — £480
* Haddenham Community Library — £480
* Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases — £480
* Rejuvenation of Green Lane — £250
* Haddenham Hopefuls ('Relay for Life') — £100

There was also a small donation made in support of this community website, for which your editor is sincerely grateful. Similarly, Red Kite Radio benefited from a small donation.

Well done to all the Haddenham Mummers -- fundraising with a smile!
