Andrew Trott-Barn and his team of Forever Manchester Ambassadors have done it again by raising an astonishing £40,000 at the annual Mirror Ball held at The Lowry Hotel on Friday 2nd March.

It was the weekend Manchester was visited by the Beast from the East, but nothing could stop revellers from turning out in their finest to celebrate this firm fixture in the city’s social scene. This year’s theme influenced guest’s outfits as they decked themselves in leather and lace.

Speaking of guests, they included Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward and her two fashionista daughters Taylor and Darby Ward in glam lace ensembles, Corrie star Faye Brookes and her pop idol beau Gareth Gates.

Gareth helped party goers dance until late with a set list of rock and pop classics – including “Spirit in the Sky”. I think we can all agree that’s an absolute tune.

Thank you Mirror Ball team for once again raising money for Forever Manchester.
