A glittering ball hosted by Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge raised over 15,000 for the national childrens charity Dreams Come True.
Organisers Kelly Bradley, Lisa Camps and Claire Pestana are all friends who, inspired by a firsthand experience of the joy and special memories created by a dream come true, hope to raise vital funds help make other treasured dreams a reality.
The night included a guest appearance from media mogul, Max Clifford, who made a personal donation of 4,000 towards the event.
The dreams of Rebecca, 16, and Lawrence, 17, who both suffer from Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, and brother and sister Jason, 14, and Danielle, 19, who have severe Downs Syndrome with a heart defect and muscular atrophy, w respectively, were funded by the night.
The organisers also hope to raise awareness of a new drug that could help friend Ella Balestri.
Ella has a life-limiting illness called Sanfilippo syndrome, a degenerative condition with a shorter life expectancy.
Ella has recently been given some hope for her future with the introduction of a new drug.
Her family and friends are currently looking to raise money to trial the new drug, which could potentially save her life, and it will take 60,000 people to donate 10 to help reach their target.
