On a perfect summer evening Reggie Heyworth of The Cotswold Wildlife Park gave a lovely party to celebrate our 70th Anniversary and to raise funds for The Mulberry Bush School. Seven kind hostesses (Arabella Woods, Laura Williams, Lucinda Stewart-Richardson, Sarah Vernon, Laura Sednaoui and Plum Brackenbury) invited their friends to enjoy drinks and canapés on the terrace of the beautiful house at the park while their children played in the playground and visited the animals.

There was such a loud babble of conversation that at first the rhinos stayed near the rhino-houses in the distance, but later two mothers and their calves were brave enough to come near the guests.

We are so grateful to Reggie, all the hostesses and guests for their amazing generosity.
