“We are hoping for great things this year, as we are donating our collection to our member Russ Smith’s sponsored walk along the whole length of the South West coast path starting next Easter,” said Mummer Henry Piper, aka Old Father Christmas. Russell will raise cash for Children’s Hospice South West with the epic trek.
The Mummers have supported the charity since their earliest days and produced a “slightly nude” calendar as a fundraiser for the cause.
“We are delighted with the response this has generated, with the calendar proving so popular that a second batch was printed, and that has now virtually sold out,” said Henry. A few copies are still available from Paragon Books.

Henry added: “We hope the weather is kinder to us than last year when we performed in temperatures well below zero in very adverse conditions- such that several of our members were ‘snowed in’ and we had to re-write the play in various pub car parks
