Stars were out in force when the Hilton Hotel Manchester staged its annual Star Ball last night. The glamorous black tie event, attended by famous faces such as Hollyoaks actresses Jorgie Porter and Stephanie Davis, successfully raised £62,300 for Variety and the Hilton Community Foundation. More than 400 guests enjoyed a champagne reception followed by a four-course dinner before hearing speeches from some of those supported by the charities, including the inspirational story of Matt King, OBE. Attendees then danced the night away to the sounds of Jack Pack and girl-band Vanquish.

Hilton Manchester general manager, John McLaughlin, said: ‘It was a terrific evening and we once again opened our doors to the region’s biggest movers and shakers – raising an incredible amount of cash for these two hugely deserving charities. It was great to see so many faces and they really didn’t let us down with the amount they committed to charity on the night.’
