Towersey Morris Present Cheque
Cheque Presentation

One Saturday, September 2011 Towersey Morris held a sponsored Day of Dance in the Market Square, Aylesbury, at Wendover and outside Wycombe Wanderers FC before their home match against Brentford. Over twenty different Cotswold Morris dances were performed during the day. Each dancer was sponsored so much per dance.

We raised 2800-00 for the Cancer & Haematology Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital (formerly called The Wooden Spoon Unit).

The cheque was presented on Friday, 9th March 2012 by the Squire of Towersey Morris, Andy Hardy to Dr Ann Watson, who runs the unit. We then danced for patients, their families and the staff at the unit. We included a dance called The Rose, this involved dancing round Dr Watson, weaving intricate patterns and then finally lifting her up onto our shoulders!

We chose the C & H Unit as the wife of one of our members (Jenny & Peter Adshead, of Towersey Drive, Thame) had been referred to the unit with cancer. They were so amazed at the care and attention that was paid to them that they wanted to show their gratitude in a tangible way and Towersey Morris were delighted at being able to help.

If you fancy joining the fun, just contact our squire Michael on 01296 435063 or by email Here and arrange to come and meet us. You don't have to stay - but most people do.
