Organised by their mums Emma Knighton and Vicky Maley, the event at Bowdon Rugby Club was attended by 250 guests who helped to raise £14,000 for Once Upon a Smile, a Manchester-based charity.
The lunch, which featured a set from The X Factor’s Jake Quickenden, was also attended by actor Daniel Jillings, who founded the charity with Emmerdale star, Danny Miller in 2011.
Emma Knighton said: ‘I want to thank everyone who came and made the afternoon such a great day, raising money for a wonderful charity. We hope to do it all again next year.’
