The Cherry Pickers

of Cookham Dean

The Cherry Pickers is a group of people who all live in Cookham who seek to raise money through organising a variety of community based events and then donating the money to local good causes. Many in Cookham have been to events organised by us such as the Gravity Grand Prix and Boxing Day Games.

The group has been been running in its current form since 1976 although it does have a history going back a long time.

The Cherry Pickers have through the support of the village community been able to raise and donate an amazing £400,000 since 1976 to local good causes
