Last week on a beautiful autumn evening we welcomed 200 guests to a cocktail reception in aid of a Kenyan Education Charity, which we support, called LangaLanga. www.langalanga.org.uk
It was started by an amazing English man who helped rebuild 14 primary schools and pay for secondary education of outstanding children each year and support them all the way through to university. It was very uplifting to hear that there were now Doctors, Engineers, Teachers and Nurses who could return to educate and look after their community, adding tremendous value to it, as well as an extraordinary sense of achievement for themselves.
Our guests were very generous, some even decided to sponsor a child and many kindly donated money.
The Castle looked beautiful and it was a great experience before all the guests returned home from the real Downton Abbey to watch the first episode of the long awaited fourth season of Downton Abbey on the television!
Thank you to everyone who came.
