Street performance group, The Prize Old Mummers have raised a whopping £21,000 for our hospices!

This incredible fundraising total has been raised over a number of years, since the group decided to support our charity back in 2015, by hosting ‘mummers plays’ and vibrant street performances in return for donations. Last year, The Mummers raised £3,800 by putting on plays across the Portsmouth area.

Our plays are not only written by us, but also delivered with a touch of spontaneity. Our primary objective is to entertain, while raising funds for Naomi House & Jacksplace hospices.
