Rycote Park – Gardens Tour and Lunch
Wellbeing of Women is delighted to be hosting an exclusive lunch and garden tour at Rycote Park, Oxfordshire on the 6th June 2018, in aid of our pioneering work as Britain’s foremost charity supporting women’s health.
Your visit to the stunning Rycote Park will begin with coffee and tea in the 18th century barn at 10am, followed by an introductory talk on the history of the estate from Sarah Taylor, past High Sheriff of Oxfordshire who is very generously welcoming us into her home for the day. She and her team will then lead us on a tour of the Chapel, which dates back to 1449, the historic grounds and exquisite gardens of Rycote.
An informal lunch will be served at 12.30pm where you will have the chance to hear more about the life changing work of Wellbeing of Women.
Wellbeing of Women is the only UK charity that funds research across the breadth of women’s reproductive health ranging from ovarian cancer, premature birth and menopause. Many of the routine treatments we all take for granted today came about thanks to the research we have funded over the last 54 years. Our first grant led to the wide spread use of folic acid in pregnancy to protect the unborn baby, and today’s school girls receive the HPV vaccination to protect them from cervical cancer thanks to work we funded.
Rycote Park was once a great Tudor Palace much visited by royalty, including Queen Elizabeth I. The grounds still bear the stamp of Capability Brown and this is a unique opportunity to visit them at this special event.
Tickets are £45 which includes coffee on arrival followed an exclusive tour and lunch with a glass of wine.
We would be thrilled if you could join us and please do RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 0203 697 6348, before Friday 4th May 2018 as places are limited.
