Wickham Morris have 2 main aims - to enjoy ourselves and keep the old English tradition of Morris dancing going.. At the various pubs and other venues where we dance, we "pass the hat around" and in recent years we have collected well over £1000 each year.


In addition, we regularly support various local Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides and schools by putting on displays or teaching children. In fact it is one of the features of Wickham, that if any children come and watch us and want to give it a try then we get them up dancing - and a child in our definition is anyone aged between 7 and 97, though we might extend this if a special case is made!


Each year we support a charity, and since 1985 we have given over £40,000.


In the 2020 season we are supporting JDRF the type 1 Diabetes Charity.  https://jdrf.org.uk/

See their face book page https://www.facebook.com/jdrfsouth/

From their web site :-


"We fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1.

We work with government, academia and industry to accelerate research in the UK and within healthcare policy to ensure that the outcomes of research are delivered to people with type 1 in the UK.

And we give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families. Join us in creating a world without type 1 diabetes."
