The night was all in aid of raising funds for Marie Curie, the cancer charity committed to the care of people with terminal illnesses, with their dedicated army of over 2000 nurses. With a silent auction as part of the evening, a whopping total of £54,000 was raised which will go towards future research and campaign work.
