    'Bertha's Resurrection' by Turtle Bunbury

    Author, podcaster, broadcaster, historian and our dear friend Turtle Bunbury stumbled upon Big Bertha’s wake on New Year’s Eve in 1993. This kind of thing happens to Turtle all the time which makes him almost as remarkable as Bertha! Without Turtle, we would not have discovered Bertha and we owe him a huge debt of gratitude for bringing Bertha to our attention. Turtle recently published a wonderful article entitled “Bertha’s Resurrection” for his website turtlebunbury.com.

    Home From Home Travel Auction in aid of Ukraine

    Last chance to bid or donate to this worthy cause. Auction ends at 7pm on Sunday, 1st May.

    Home for Home is a travel auction, offering participants the chance to stay in some of the world’s most beautiful and exclusive homes, with all proceeds directly benefiting much needed aid relief efforts in the Ukraine. The brainchild of of our dear friend Josephine Ryan, author, interiors expert and stylist, the collection comprises 30 properties located across the globe, many of which are not typically available to rent. Homes listed include Neuendorf House, a design-led Mallorcan villa created by world renowned architects John Pawson and Claudio Silvestrin and Thyme, the much loved 31 bedroom bolthole found in the heart of the Cotswolds.

    With opening bids starting from £500, the auction provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience some of the world’s most spellbinding properties. Josephine is hoping to raise £50,000; all proceeds will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which allows the added benefit of a pound for pound donations match, courtesy of the UK Government.
