More than 300 guests attended a glamorous Moulin Rouge themed ball in aid of The Giles’ Trust Brain Tumour Fund.

The ball, which took place at Edgbaston Stadium on Saturday, 8 October, 2016, was attended by stars of sport, stage and screen from Birmingham and beyond.

The event included a drinks reception, three-course meal, raffle, and silent auction. A live auction, led by the fantastic Jonny Gould, also took place, with incredible prizes on offer, including a holiday to South Africa.

Live music was provided by Amelia Brown and Paul Greetham before guests partied the night away with radio presenter and DJ Phil Upton. The Master of Ceremonies was none other than voiceover actor Tom Clarke-Hill.

Guests included friends of Ashley and Stine from the world of sport, including ex-Aston Villa manager Ron Atkinson, cricketers Ian Bell, Dougie Brown and Jim Troughton, plus Harry Potter actor Oliver Phelps.

Thanks to the generosity of those attending, an amazing £25,000 was raised.

It was a fantastic event and brilliant fun for everyone who attended. Ashley, Stine, and the dedicated team of friends and family who helped to make this possible have all put an incredible amount of effort into making this ball a great success.
