A glamorous fundraiser for a charity helping make terminally ill children's dreams come true raised thousands of pounds on Sunday night.

The Hopes and Dreams gala, at the Prince Regent Hotel in Manor Road, Woodford Green, was a great success with more than £14,000 raised to help critical and terminally ill children.

Hosted by Ilford North MP Wes Streeting, with special guests including the charity’s patron Linda Robson and Mitch Winehouse – who made a staggering donation of £10,000.

Hopes and Dreams chairwoman Ruth Salahi said: “It was an amazing night, everybody had a brilliant time and it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves.

“We all had a right laugh, Wes was brilliant as question master and so friendly with everyone.

“The charity is run by volunteers, and every penny raised tonight that didn’t go towards the venue or paying for catering will now go towards helping make children’s dreams come true.”
