The Royal Countryside Fund's Journal launch
Last night we were delighted to be guests at Berry Bros & Rudd's Napoleon Cellars in London for The Royal Countryside Fund’s Journal launch.
The journal is an annual publication that shares the passions of the charity and the people it positively supports.
Guests were welcomed by Heather Hancock, Chair of Trustees, before a talk from Adam Holden, Director to the Chair’s Office at Berry Bros. & Rudd, speaking about the importance of supporting farming and rural communities - and the history of the King’s Ginger liqueur!
The highlights for us (apart from the wine!) was hearing from Nick Corke who runs Hour Community, a community support project in Suffolk, and Demelza Fish-Jenkins who, together with her family, runs a farm in Wales - both of whom have been supported by the Fund.
The evening closed with a prize draw hosted by Phil Vickery, former English rugby union player and ambassador for the RCF, which raised nearly £2,000 to support rural and farming communities.
A big thanks once again to the Royal Countryside Fund for inviting us!
