Saturday 27th June saw Fields in Trust President HRH The Duke of Cambridge play in the seventh Royal Polo Day, hosted by the Halcyon Gallery.
Held at Manor Farm, Cowdray Park, the Halcyon Gallery team of world class players, led by The Duke played against the home team El Remanso. The game was closely contested under clear skies, with the Halcyon Gallery team winning the coveted Chihuly Trophy. Another of the Prince’s charities, The Royal Marsden, also benefitted from The Duke’s polo skill.
“It is fantastic when elite companies such as the Halcyon Gallery and its supporters recognise, and support, our work on protecting outdoor spaces. We are grateful for the support they have given in helping us to reach new audiences with this event and look forward to a continued fruitful relationship. We’re also appreciative of the support of His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, giving his time to help raise the profile of Fields in Trust”, Helen Griffiths Fields in Trust CEO.
“Philanthropy is a pivotal part of Halcyon Gallery’s ethos. We recognise the power that art has to inspire and to move people, and we are committed to channelling that inspiration to contribute positively to the community. Our goal is that, through our enduring relationships with a wide range of charitable organisations, art can work as a catalyst to produce a tangible positive effect on youth, education, and the environment”
