As part of our continuing support for Guildford Cathedrals ‘Make your Mark’ appeal we attended the swanky ‘Dinner in the Nave’ on Saturday night. I had the good fortune to be sitting next to the guest speaker Michael Portillo and the Rt Revd Ian Buckley, Bishop of Dorking.
Michael Portillo is an amazing speaker, very funny and self deprecating. He told a wonderful story when I asked him what it was really like to work with Mrs Thatcher. The auction raised over 20k on the night. Almost worth throwing yourself off the top of the Cathedral for!
