Celebrities join us for 'Roll out the Red' ball

Natasha Kaplinsky hosting Roll Out The Red

On Thursday 11 February, some of our celebrity supporters joined us at our 'Roll out the Red' fundraising ball at The Savoy, London which raised over £170,000 for life saving research.

The star-studded evening was hosted by newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky and included a welcome speech from BHF Ambassador Pippa Middleton.  

They were joined by celebrity supporters including actor Hugh Grant, singer Sinitta, ‘Made in Chelsea’ star Oliver Proudlock, model Emma Louise Connolly and ‘The Only Way is Essex’ star Jessica Wright.

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Alesha Dixon got everyone on the dance floor. Guests also enjoyed performances from Classical BRIT award winning vocal group BLAKE and a classical performance from DUO. The night ended with a set by international DJ Judge Jules. 

Lord Jeffery Archer was our auctioneer for the evening, helping to raise more than £60,000 with some fabulous prizes, including a weekend away at ‘Downton Abbey’s’ Highclere Castle and a limited edition Tabitha Webb dress and scarf co-designed by Pippa Middleton.
