More than £100,000 was raised at a star-studded charity ball for the charity set up in the name of Harry Moseley from Birmingham. The event last night was a sell-out with 1,250 people buying tickets.
Celebrity guests included TV presenter Ben Shepherd, Harry Potter stars Oliver and James Phelps who played the Weasley twins, and Olympic gymnast Kristian Thomas.
Harry died almost exactly a year ago from an inoperable brain tumour after he raised more than £700,000 making and selling hand-made bracelets up and down the country.
