It was a mystical evening of enchantment as guests arrived at the Principal Hotel in Manchester to support Saving Grace and their fundraising efforts for cancer charity, The Christie.

Founder of Saving Grace, Rebecca Hartley organised this event because of her own battle with breast cancer.The evening started with a champagne reception with guests being entertained by jazz singer Jane Relphs whilst their garden fairies sold keys to the secret garden gate where guests had a chance to win a necklace worth £1300.

The evening included a live auction where guests were able to bid on a luxury holiday and a VIP night out in Manchester. With celebrity guests out in force, the secret garden party raised an incredible £20,000 for The Christie that will continue to help and support people.
