More than £85,000 was raised for Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People at its annual Glitter Ball at Rudding Park, Harrogate.

Among the 530 guests were Martin House ambassadors Jeff Hordley and Zoe Henry as well as stars from TV’s Emmerdale.

Former England and Leeds United footballer and Masterchef runner-up, Danny Mills was also at the ball. Danny offered to cook a meal in the home of a successful auction bidder for up to 10 people and raised £4,000. A diamond necklace donated by Berry’s Jewellers was also auctioned for £5,600. Brenda Peel, Martin House corporate fundraiser, said: ‘This was our biggest and best Glitter Ball yet, everyone had a fabulous time and we are thrilled to have raised such a huge amount, particularly in our 30th anniversary year.’
