Audience goes wild for presenter Simon King
4:24pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
TV presenter and naturalist Simon King delighted a packed crowd at the Hallmark Hotel in Handforth as part of Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
The globe-trotting cameraman took 400 guests on a whirlwind tour of almost 30 years of exploits in the world’s wildest places from sharing an Arctic portakabin with wolves to his beloved leopards in Africa.
The evening was opened by Cheshire Wildlife Trust president Felicity Goodey and sponsored by Saffrey Champness of Manchester.
Cheshire Wildlife Trust expects the final fundraising total from the event to reach more than £5,000, the proceeds of which will go to support its conservation projects across the Cheshire region.
