Variety Wessex were the beneficiaries of a fabulous fundraising lunch featuring a talk by renowned news journalist, Kate Adie, at Chewton Flen on Sunday 4th July 2012. The event raised in excess of £3,000 for a young boy from Burton who needs a very special lycra suit for his health disorder.

Over 100 guests attended this special lunch featuring a very interesting talk from Kate who spoke about her career as a journalist, including her time as Chief News Correspondent for the BBC which saw her report from war zones across the world and was a position she held for over 14 years, making her own of the most recognisable correspondents on television.

Variety Wessex Chair, Frances Cornelius, and the committee would like to thank Kate and everyone who attended for supporting this wonderful event!
