ETHICAL investment firm Global Plantations has raised more than £200,000 for charity.

The Chichester firm hosted Go Wild At Goodwood House, which raised money for wildlife charity the Born Free Foundation.

It is an international wildlife charity working throughout the world to stop individual wild animal suffering and protect threatened species in the wild.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto was among the VIP guests dining at the historic stately home alongside the Earl and Countess of March, Born Free patron Donal MacIntyre and EastEnders star John Altman.

Antiques Roadshow star John Cameron oversaw the auction of prizes including football shirts signed by England players Rio Ferdinand and Danny Welbeck, a walk-on part in Doc Martin, and a series of unique paintings by Rolf Harris which raised the £200,000.
