As many of you know, my working life has been significantly shaped by my association with Donkey Wheel Ltd, a venture philanthropy and impact investment foundation.
Yesterday was a bit of a pilgrimage; went straight from Heathrow to Grey's Court in Oxfordshire where arriving early meant a kip in the morning sun before we got to spend a few hours wandering the estate where Donkey Wheel was born.
The Brunner family home, the origins dating back to the 11th century, holds fascinating stories and an incredible maze of gardens.
... and in an old building THE donkey wheel.
Liz, me, Dave and Paul in front of the donkey wheel ... less the donkey.
