Christopher Gilmour kindly opened the doors to Winslow Hall on Friday 17th July for an exclusive drinks reception held in aid of Restore, prior to the evening’s performance of La Triviata performed in the gardens.

Winslow Hall’s panelled drawing room was the wonderful setting and we were pleased to welcome Amanda Nicholson, former Restore Chair, and her party; the Earl of Buckinghamshire and his wife and guests; Dominic Furniss, Restore’s Deputy Director of Research with his wife and son; Mark Greaves, a Restore Trustee, and his wife Patty; and Adria and Charles Blakeney; as well as India Oliver chair of our Young Ambassadors accompanying her mother Amanda, Campaign Manager for Restore.

Our numbers were boosted by our host Christopher Gilmour’s friend and family too. They generously supplied the sparkling wine and canapés- so a great thanks to them.
