Rutland Morris make another donation to Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Ridlington

Presenting our cheque to the Dove Cottage Hospice, Riddington


Rutland Morris are delighted to have donated our 'Christmas events' collection of £400 to the Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Ridlington.

This year we saw record numbers and enthusiastic crowds at our two traditional 'Christmas events'. The two seasonal events that have become fixtures in our calendar are the 'famous' Rutland Morris Mummers on tour and the Boxing Day Mummers Play and Dance event.

Last December our very own Rutland Morris Mummers visited The Plough at Caldecott, The White Swan at Harringworth and The Exeter Arms at Barrowden.

Then, on Boxing Day, we visited, as usual, the Horse & Jockey at Manton, followed by the Market Square in Uppingham and we finished at the Crown in Uppingham.

Our Squire, John Barsby, explained "we are delighted to help the Dove Cottage venture in Rutland and we wish this deserving cause well as it establishes itself as a much needed resource to the county. Our first donation paid for a road sign to guide visitors to the hospice, and we know that this latest amount will be put to good use too."
