Undaunted by the drizzle and with a spring in their step The Devil’s Dyke Morris Men entertained the somewhat damp Bank Holiday crowd at the White Swan Beer Festival in Stow-cum-Quy.
Not only did the group do their valiant best to dispel the rain, their efforts raised £1,500 for Headway Cambridgeshire.
Their spokesman Christopher Harris says;
“For the last two years The Devil's Dyke Morris Men have been proud to collect money on Headway Cambridgeshire’s behalf. We chose to support the charity because we know their work is so valuable in helping people to recover following brain injury. The response from the public in our audiences has been universally positive, and I would like to think that more people now know about Headway's work than was the case before.”
Jonny O’Keeffe who attended the performance on behalf of Headway Cambridgeshire and accepted the cheque says:
“It was great to see them dancing. We rely so much on donations of this sort to maintain the services we offer to brain injured people and this is a colourful and entertaining way to fundraise. We are very grateful for all the effort they have put in to help us.”
“ I struggled with a lot of issues, especially how I felt my father’s personality had changed and Headway Cambridgeshire helped me a lot at that time in my life. They made me feel much less alone and I’ll always be grateful for that. ”
