Rutland Morris challenged the Crown Inn in Uppingham to produce 6 Morris Dancers to perform a dance on Thursday 3rd October as part of Rutland Morris’s programme dancing at the Crown's "Oktoberfest" beer festival. The Crown's side danced twice during the evening, which was to raise money for Rainbows Hospice.
As part of the challenge, Rutland Morris donated £100 and Alan Pickersgill, publican at the Crown, donated another £100. Then the Crown's customers donated more than £200, so the evening raised £410.50.
A tremendous effort from all concerned!
Dave Casewell from Rutland Morris said "We are delighted that the Crown accepted our challenge! Uppingham turned up in force at the Crown to support the pub dancers, they had a good audience to reward their pluck and effort."
