Fund-raisers saddle up for hoe-down

A FUND-RAISING hoe-down has raised £2,100 towards extending a nursery.

Dressed in their best stetsons and cowboy boots, parents and friends of Rainbow Corner Day Nursery packed into Jeremy Irons’ and Sinead Cusack’s barn in Watlington, which the couple had donated for the evening.

The acting pair even joined the party for some line-dancing as the evening went on.

Guests enjoyed a pig roast, salads and home-made chocolate brownies — all washed down with Tequila shots.

A nursery spokesman said: “We want to thank Jeremy and Sinead for the kind loan of their barn.

“We also want to say a big thank you to all the parents who supported us and to the committee and staff who made the whole event possible.”
