Lord and Lady Saye and Sele

It is with great sadness that we have learnt that Nathaniel Fiennes, Lord Saye and Sele, has died aged 103.

His great sense of humour, friendship, generosity and support has meant so much over the years in recognising the work of our charity.

We know that Mariette, family and friends will be feeling a great loss and we send our deepest sympathy and condolences.

Lord and Lady Saye and Sele

We are proud and excited that Broughton is the inspiration for Emily Sharpe’s show garden design for 2016. Emily’s success in award-winning gardens is indeed excellent publicity for the Charity UCARE, and its symbol Tulipa ‘Caresse’. With all our very best wishes for continuing success.
