The London Chapter of the Rottnest Foundation has been resurrected and a Committee has been formed, headed by Sandy Barblett, son of Pat Barblett A.M. who is Founder of the Rottnest Foundation and current Vice Chair.
The London Chapter Committee held a wine night on 4th May 2017 to re-launch the London Chapter and raise funds for the Foundation.
The night was a great success with all 120 tickets selling out.
Through ticket sales, a raffle and live auction the Committee raised ~ £7000 was raised to support the Rottnest Foundation and our major projects.
Guests were even able to have a selfie taken with a quokka!
A massive thank you to Sandy, Jahney, Simon, Josh and Kate for their outstanding event organising skills which has raised significant funds to help conserve our beloved Island for future generations.
