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.
