A group of Morris dancers has done its bit to help another strand of the arts - raising funds for a theatre's community event.

Rumburgh Morris, a mixed-sex Cotswold Morris group based at The Buck pub, has donated £120 towards the Fisher Theatre in Bungay's Cinema and Create events.

Taking place one Sunday morning a month, the events see a film shown in the auditorium followed by parent and child craft event led by a team of volunteers.

The sessions are designed around children between the ages of three and nine years old, with the objective of introducing youngsters to the cinema environment.

The Morris dancing group, which holds its practice sessions at the village hall in St Margaret South Elham on Tuesday evenings, raised the money during their summer season of dancing.

A spokesman for Rumburgh Morris said; 'We are pleased to make a contribution to this community project.'
