Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Year Of The Lion Open Day

To celebrate Born Free’s “Year of the Lion”, renowned artist and loyal Born Free friend Pollyanna Pickering opened her gallery in Derbyshire for a very special day. Visitors had the opportunity to look around the gallery and gardens, have a glass of wine with their lunch and meet Born Free Founder Virginia McKenna OBE. Pollyanna launched a brand new “Year of  the Lion” limited edition print for the event. Over 100 visitors came through the gallery and helped to raise over £7,500.

As a thank you Virginia presented Pollyanna with a plaque to go to Ethiopia beside a tree that will be planted next to our wildlife rescue and education centre at Ensessekoteh. The funds raised will go towards Rea and Girma, 2 lion cubs recently rescued.
