Charity Bumblebee Evening!—

As patron of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Olly jumped at the opportunity to host a special evening at Corney & Barrow’s head office in London last month.

The evening kicked off with a serving of Olly’s very own ‘Bee Kind’ gin cocktail (gin kindly donated by The Garden Shed Drinks Co) and canapés, followed by a glass of Ambriel Classic Cuvée Brut Traditional Method NV, a beautiful Sussex sparkler.

The four course dinner was accompanied by a selection of bee-friendly wines and the night finished with two, sustainable and organic, whiskies.

The aim of the evening was to ensure everyone had an enjoyable time whilst learning about bumblebees, and raising awareness of their plight as well as funds to help the Trust continue their excellent work. Throughout the evening Gill Perkins, from the Trust, spoke about how fascinating and important bumblebees are.
