THE son of the stars of classic film Born Free came to Marlow to tell schoolchildren about his animal welfare and wild life conservation work.

Will Travers from the Born Free Foundation was the guest at Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School's speech day and prizegiving night on June 25.

Mr Travers is the son of actors Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers who starred in the 1966 movie. In 1984 he co-founded The Born Free Foundation charity. School spokesman Jenny Stacey said: "Mr Travers spoke amusingly and passionately about his work around the world and presented prizes to the prizewinners."
