2023 Bumble flies into Hythe
On a bracing, breezy winter's day the Meddlars met with a warmer-looking Bumble from the Honeypot children's charity to hand over a cheque for a massive £1,200 to go towards support and holidays for young carers locally.
The money was collected during our 2023 dance-out season at pubs, festivals and fetes and our thanks go to our generous onlookers for their donations, and also to our persistent, persuasive collectors, proud practitioners of the dark arts of extortion for a good cause.

2021-22 Honeypot House
Our charity for 2021-22 was Honeypot House in the New Forest. - a magical place which gives support and respite for young child carers aged 5-12 years.
A few of us visited Honeypot House to hand over funds collected during our two dance-out seasons. We were given a talk on the many ways in which the charity works with young carers and had a full tour of all the wonderful on-site facilities - it made us all the more determined to step up our fund-raising efforts next year.
2018-19 The Minstead Trust
