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!

This year Covid restrictions created additional challenges, but the Mummers were not to be put off their fundraising efforts.

On Saturday evening 12th February, the Mummers got together at the Rising Sun pub to present cheques to this year's charities, all presented by King George and Mummer-herder, Tim Chowns:

* Haddenham Community Library — £300
* Helen and Douglas House — £500
* Mucopolysaccharide Society — £500

There was also a small donation made in support of this community website, for which your editor is sincerely grateful.

Similarly, Red Kite Radio and St Marys Church Christmas Tree Festival also benefited from a small donation.

The Mummers extend their thanks to everyone who came along on the evening; to everyone who supported their fundraising this season; to Brian Fattorini for taking photos; and to Liam & Silvie for hosting the event at the Rising Sun.

Well done to all the Haddenham Mummers, past and present -- fundraising with a smile!
