CHARITY > Desert Heart, Friday 21st March 2014, London
Tomorrow evening sees the annual Desert Heart party returning to the good ship HMS President on London’s Embankment. Co-hosted by Nicky’s husband James Dobree, this annual event celebrating the life of Mike Hearn (1972-2005) raises huge sums for the Save The Rhino Trust in Namibia, as well as continuing Mike’s work in conservation among the tribal communities of Namibia.
A night of celebration with a DJ line up to include Dave Stirling AKA DJ Slope, Zivi Sainsbury, Freddie Fellows & Big Al (Alex D’Holm), Jake Ainley, Konal Kirsten, Miss DJ Sauce – Sephie and Christian Jaroljmek.
With ticket sales including entry to the raffle there are some wonderful prizes up for grabs including holidays in Sri Lanka, hotel stays in London and Norfolk as well as pieces of art, jewellery, champagne and festival tickets.
The event is now completely sold out, and all eyes are on the ongoing silent auction available to view here. Amongst the amazing prizes including a weeks stay on a South African wine estate, lunch with Mary Berry and a Meet & Greet with Bear Grylls is the opportunity to bid for a week’s stay at Nicky and James Dobree’s farmhouse in the beautiful resort of Les Gets, France.
Noted as the “Finest winter house in the French Alps” by Tatler Magazine, Kevin McCloud fell for Ferme de Moudon many years ago likening it to “…something out of a James Bond set”.

At the turn of the 19th century there were approximately one millions rhinos. In 1970, there were around 70,000. Today there are only around 28,000 rhinos surviving in the wild.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s poaching was pretty well brought under control but since the mid 2000’s, poaching has exploded. From 2000 to 2008, in South Africa, about 15-25 rhino were lost per year to poaching. In 2009 the figure was 122, rising to 668 in 2012 and over 1000 in 2013. The rhino is threatened as never before. Please help to keep this incredible work in Namibia going by supporting this cause. For further information on Desert Venture just click here.
The auction ends on the 23rd March, at 1pm GMT.
