The foundation, which supports research ino the rare, life-limiting genetic condition NPC, held its eighth annual charity ball at Doubletree by Hilton, Stadium MK on Saturday, April 16.

The evening was hosted by local radio presenter and charity ambassador Oliver Dean. As well as a drinks reception and three-course meal, guests were treated to a packed night of entertainment, including a performance by seven-piece band Musical Orphans and a showstopping ’20s-themed opening performance by the JustDance Academy featuring vocalist Holly Brewer.

A live charity auction hosted by comedian Ian Royce was given a last-minute boost by former MK Dons and now Tottenham Hotspurs player Dele Alli , who generously donated a pair of signed football boots, which went for £1,100 on the night.
