EastEnders star attends Brooke fundraiser at Thenford Arboretum

Pam St Clement was in attendance as Lord and Lady Heseltine hosted an open garden day at Thenford Arboretum and Gardens on Thursday 26 May, in aid of Brooke. The event raised around £5000, which will go towards improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules around the world.

Pam is a long-time supporter of the charity and has even pledged to leave a gift in her will.

The Oxfordshire gardens, which are only open to the public on a limited number of days of the year, extend over 70 acres and feature a collection of more than 3000 different trees and shrubs, extensive herbaceous borders, water gardens, an alpine trough garden, a sculpture garden, and a rose garden.

Over 300 guests attended the event, which included afternoon tea and a speech from Brooke CEO Chris Wainwright.

100% of proceeds from the event will go to Brooke, an international charity that protects and improves the lives of horses, donkeys and mules in the developing world. There are an estimated 100 million of these animals working to support the lives of around 600 million people. Brooke works with owners, communities and policy makers to deliver significant and lasting change for working animals and ensure a better future for future generations.
