Sussex charity the Starr Trust kicked off the festive season early this year with a fundraising evening held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on 18 November

The ‘Winter Musical Extravaganza: A Night at the Movies’ featured live entertainment from the talented Starr Trust Singers and some hilarious compèring from Mark Yexley. The cast wore dazzling costumes and put on a fabulous show with musical medleys from the movies. Guests were treated to a champagne reception followed by a delicious 3-course festive dinner and late night disco.

Tracey Narvaez from the Starr Trust said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone that came and supported us. Our legendary Starr Trust Singers entertained 245 guests and the evening raised £28,000 which is the highest amount we’ve ever raised from any event. We couldn’t have managed this without our generous headline sponsor Drum Technologies, supported by Curation Corporation and Gemini Print. Local businesses also donated truly fantastic prizes which all helped raise money for the young people of Sussex. We can’t wait to see everyone again at our Winter Ball next year on November 17.”
