Many local residents and visitors to Haddenham over the Christmas period will have been entertained and amused by the traditional folk play presented in various village locations and hostelries by the Haddenham Mummers.
Each presentation concludes with an invitation to members of the audience to make a charitable donation.
Some donors may suspect that the collection goes towards the troupe's beer fund — after all, its thirsty work jumping around in wellington boots, chainmail and black face paint! But, of course, that's not the case — all the funds raised go to well-recognised and publicly acknowledged charitable causes.
So with this in mind, the Haddenham Mummers are delighted to announce that they raised approximately £2,000 over the most recent Christmas period (including a donation of £250 from Chiltern Railways).
And this week, three cheques each of £680 were forwarded to the following charities:
- The Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases
- The Chestnuts Care Home, Aylesbury
- Haddenham Community Library
Congratulations to all the Mummers, and grateful thanks to all the generous donors!
