Alison Moyet sparkles at Liverpool's Diamond Ball
One of Britain's most loved female stars,
Alison Moyet, starred at the annual Prince's Trust
Diamond Ball, helping to raise almost £50,000
for disadvantaged young people.
The singer put on an exclusive performance for hundreds of
guests at the prestigious fundraiser at St George’s Hall, in the
heart of Liverpool.
The event raised almost £50,000 for The Trust, to
support disadvantaged young people across the north west into
work, training or education.
Alison, who is an Ambassador for the youth charity, said:
I was delighted to be able to perform in
Liverpool to raise money for The Prince’s Trust. It was a fantastic
event and the money raised will really make a difference to
disadvantaged people across the north west.
An auction on the evening offered guests the opportunity to win
an array of exclusive prizes, including tickets to The X Factor
final in Manchester, an exclusive insight behind the scenes of the
Sky Sports Gillette Soccer Saturday programme and a three-day
luxury holiday for two in any of the Small Luxury Hotels worldwide
Guests also had the chance to win a £10,000 item of diamond
jewellery generously donated by exclusive jewellers and long term
sponsor of The Diamond Ball, David M Robinson.
The Diamond Ball, which is considered by many to be the
highlight of Liverpool’s Christmas social calendar, returned to St
George’s Hall for the ninth year running.
Since it started the event has raised almost £400,000 for The
Trust’s work across the region.
The prestigious black tie event included a Laurent-Perrier
Champagne reception, followed by a festive four course meal before
the entertainment began.
North West Development Committee member of The Prince’s Trust
and founder of The Diamond Ball, Steve Sealey, said:
The support of people like Alison is invaluable
to us and we are delighted that she came to perform for us at what
was, yet again, a very successful event.
Other performances on the night came from the amazing Calday
Grange Grammar School Choir and Merseyside’s very own crooner Scott
