Plymouth Morris Men have had a great couple of summer seasons recently, including Holland in 2005, a trip to Hungary and Serbia in July 2006 and Jersey in May 2007. In August 2009 we went to south-western France for the 50th Annual International Folklore Festival at Montrejeau. At the end of September we are off to Brest as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Plymouth-Brest Twinning association.
Each year we make a donation to a charity and have raised over £5,000 over the last 9 years. On Sunday 21st March 2010 members of Plymouth Morris Men danced their way around the Plymouth Mile course for Sport Relief. We raised over £900! Thank you for your support!
Our nominated charity for 2011 was St. Luke's Hospice, and we donated £700 to them, from our collections last year.
Our nominated charity for 2012 was Plymouth Heartbeat.
Our current charity we are supporting is the Devon Freewheelers
More details of our charitable giving can be found on our 'Charitable Donations' page.
