The night raised an incredible £11,480 for Once Upon a Smile, the children's bereavement charity which provides support for children who have lost a parent or sibling.
Founders of the Manchester-based charity, actors Danny Miller and Daniel Jillings, were in attendance as the evening kicked off with a drinks reception with charming live music performed by a violinist, before Kelly Willison from the charity gave a short speech on the work they do.
After a three-course meal, guests were able to take part in an auction before enjoying music from Captial FM DJ James Hall.
