Smiles all around at charity ball
Plenty of famous faces attended the annual Once Upon A Smile grand ball, at The Hilton Hotel, Deansgate. Guests were joined by Emmerdale actors Anthony Quinlan and Adam Thomas, as well as Real Housewives of Cheshire star and charity patron, Leanne Brown, at the event which raised over £26,000 for the bereavement charity. The varied bill of entertainment included the Manchester Show Choir and headline act, Toploader. A charity auction including a ‘meet and greet’ experience with the England team, and a Manchester City mascot package.
Danny Miller, who set up the charity six years ago with fellow actor Daniel Jillings, said: ‘It was an incredible night and to see so many people supporting the charity was amazing. The most important part of the evening for us is raising vital funds which will help support our bereavement support groups and finance service.’
