What was Alan Bennett up to..?

I read this news story :http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/8740984.stm  all about various scams.  But it didn't answer the first question I had on reading the story about how Alan Bennett's wallet was stolen : namely, what was he DOING with £1,500   in cash in his wallet?   £1,500! 

Who carries that sort of sum around in cash?  People who run cornershops and ice cream vans going to the bank at the end of the week, perhaps.  But elderly writers?  OK, he's old enough not to have a credit card and perhaps also to distrust debit - but  does the man not have a cheque book?
