The event also included a two-course meal provided by caterers 81 Events and a sale featuring businesses such White Coco clothing and Wendy House accessories. More than £5,000 was raised.

Branch chairwoman Sue Gentilli said: “We enjoyed the most wonderful day, starting with coffee and shopping, moving on to a delicious brunch and ending with Deborah Fielding chatting to the truly inspirational fragrance designer Jo Malone.

“At the end Jo demonstrated her fragrance tapas experience after which the rugby club had never smelt so good!

“I would like to thank everyone involved in making it such a success and helping to raise much-needed funds for the NSPCC.”
