Thank you to all who supported and joined in our World Bee Day celebrations last month!

As well as our online Lecture Series and World Bee Day Quiz, there were many things happening all over the world!

Here is a photo overview of some of the wonderful ways people raised local awareness and support for Bees Abroad beekeeping projects!

We are delighted to announce that so far (with donations still incoming) we have raised over £27,000 to support our project partners! Thank you!

And it’s not too late if you have yet to give your gift in honour of World Bee Day!

Luncheon at the Wax Chandlers Hall, London

Our World Bee Day event at the Wax Chandlers Hall was a wonderful occasion, with our Guest of Honour, the Rt Rev and Rt Honourable Lord Bishop of London and other distinguished guest speakers. All enjoyed a delicious honey and bee-inspired menu, beautifully prepared and presented by our amazing caterers from Portfolio EC2. We were delighted to celebrate with all who attended, and are grateful for the support in donations through this charity lunch event.

Here’s what some of the attendees had to say:
“…thank you so much for inviting me, it was a real pleasure – and the menu was a wonder!”
“…thank you for the invitation, it was a great day and so many interesting people to talk to.”
“…thank you for such a delightful and excellent lunch.”
“…many thanks for organising such a lovely day yesterday. The speakers were inspirational and the food superb.”
“…I feel extremely fortunate to have attended and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!”
“…The food was excellent, the talks were informative and I met some very interesting people.”
