Sir Philip and Lady Catherine Williams hosted 80 guests at the Made in Dorset event on 19 March at Bridehead in Littlebredy to celebrate the English county’s wines and raise money for the AET, which itself based in Dorset.

The evening, which included an exhibition of work of Dorset artists, was supported by three Dorset sparkling wine producers, Rebecca Hansford of Furleigh Estate, Steven Spurrier of Bride Valley vineyards and Justin Langham of Langham Wine Estate.

Helena Conibear, director of The Alcohol Education Trust and organiser of the event, said: “Being Dorset born and bred, it has been an absolute privilege to bring together such a wonderful collection of things made, created or produced in Dorset.

“These sparkling wines are truly world class and we live in a county we should be truly proud of as a creative beautiful place in which to work and live.”

The event raised £3,000 for the Alcohol Education Trust.

It was also announced that Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner will support the Trust with a similar donation to ensure children with special educational needs and disabilities are helped to stay safe around alcohol in in the county.
