A tale of two Horatio’s
Trafalgar Park was gifted to Horatio Nelson’s heirs to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar. This Wine, Cheese and Chocolate evening will raise funds for Horatio’s Garden, a charity that builds beautiful gardens for patients at spinal treatment centres in the UK. It was founded in memory of Horatio Chapple who volunteered at Salisbury Hospital’s Spinal unit and who was tragically killed by a polar bear on an expedition to Svalbard when he was just 17. This event is organised by The Wilton Hunt Club and profits will be divided equally between Horatio’s Garden and the Hunt Club.
