Secret World Ball

A10 01.10

Pollyanna joined BBC Countryfile and Panorama presenter Tom Heap at Secret World Wildlife Rescue’s annual Ball last October. Tom was the compere for the event – which this year had an oriental theme.  Supporters of the charity enjoyed a three course meal and then took part in an auction, cabaret, casino and dancing.

Pollyanna joined Tom (right) to draw the raffle and present the awards for the best fancy dress costume of the night.

David Foulds, CEO for the charity said “This event gives people a chance to have fun while also raising funds for our charity’s work.  It is wonderful to have well known personalities supporting us”

The Pollyanna Pickering Foundation has previously funded the building of mobile rehabilitation aviaries for the wildlife hospital, and Pollyanna’s artwork has appeared in books by Secret World founder Pauline Kidner who said “We had a fantastic turnout of over 200 people from across the UK for the event which is an important one for Secret World as it raises vital funds”.
