Olympic gold medallist Adrian Moorhouse helped a Gerrards Cross law firm celebrate its 50th birthday in style last week.

The former competitive swimmer, who won gold at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, joined more than 200 guests to celebrate B P Collins’ milestone birthday at Hedsor House on July 7.

The law firm’s founder - Brian Collins - also joined the party, which saw guests entertained with live music from The Revue and dancers Swing Patrol while they sipped B P Collins’ cocktails, which had been created especially for the evening.

Guests also marvelled at a specially commissioned sculpture – Companions on the Road – that was created by sculptor Alain Kurylo.

The sculpture, which is made from sustainable materials to reflect the theme of the firm’s 50th anniversary - Made to Last – will be on display in B P Collins’ office and also be available to community groups for exhibitions, as part of the firm’s support for the arts and the community.

Since 1966, the firm has advised people and businesses from Buckinghamshire, Thames Valley and London and now has more than 110 employees, including 13 partners.

Chief Executive, Ian Hopkins, B P Collins, said: “Over the past 50 years, the UK has changed dramatically and B P Collins has been advising clients every step of the way – especially in 1973 when the UK joined the EU.

“And now, as we embark on our departure – B P Collins will undoubtedly provide the same level of advice and reassurance that our clients need, to help them navigate their personal and business matters through these unprecedented times.”
