Charity Donations




Whilst we enjoy our dancing and providing our own brand of entertainment wherever we go, it gives us great satisfaction if in so doing we are able help others less fortunate than ourselves.

During our performances you will hear the Squire asking if the onlookers can spare a few coins for the "lucky hat" as it passes around or to feed Crumpet (our horse) and in return for their kindness we wish them Good Luck, Sunshine and Fertility! 

Some may assume, quite incorrectly, that as we are often dancing in the vicinity of a pub with a pint of beer in our hands that the money collected naturally buys more beer! How wrong can they be!

Annually the money collected is divided up and given to local Gloucestershire worthy causes. The charities differ each year and are chosen by the officers of the side. Below are the causes that have benefited during past years, may we thank you on their behalf for your generosity.

In addition we hold an event each year dedicated to raising funds for the local Sue Ryder hospice in Leckhampton. We aim to raise at least £1000 on these occasions and feel honoured to support such a cause. Thank you.
