The event was kindly sponsored by Samuel & Son Chartered Surveyors, Clydesdale Bank and Mayo Wynne Baxter Solicitors.
Tucked away in the East Sussex countryside, Farley Farm House, known as The Home of the Surrealists, is a hidden gem and custodian to the life and history of photographer, Lee Miller, and artist, Roland Penrose who occupied the property from 1949.
55 privately invited guests were welcomed to the gallery barn at Farley Farm House by its owners, Anthony and Roz Penrose to enjoy a tour of the house and gardens and an exhibition of Lee Miller’s photographs. The R.A.B.I committee are immensely grateful to Tony and Roz Penrose for hosting such a wonderful evening and supporting the charity.
Guests enjoyed a welcome drink of locally produced English Ridgeview sparkling wine and a lovely selection of canapés prepared by R.A.B.I committee member Gillian van der Meer.
Andrew Samuel, R.A.B.I East Sussex Chairman was joined by Chris D’Olley, R.A.B.I trustee, pictured below, to welcome and thank everyone for attending and in doing so highlighted the work of the charity locally and how important and appreciated their support was to R.A.B.I and the farming community.
Justin Ellis and Gordon Rennie from Clydesdale Bank and Dean Orgill and Simon Baillie-Hamilton from Mayo Wynne Baxter Solicitors attended and were very generous in kindly sponsoring the evening. In total, the event raised £1,350 for R.A.B.I.
