A spectacular black and white themed evening, organised by Archant London (publisher of Kentish Times series) attracted a host of celebrities and 400 guests, including those from the media and corporate world.

Hosted by renowned Gold Radio DJ James Cannon with DJ David 'Kid' Jensen hosting the grand auction, the event was held at The Brewery last Saturday.

The evening included live performances from a host of acts including 80's rock band The Blow Monkeys and pop legends Still Drifting, featuring Ray Lewis.

Celebrities adding their support included actress Jessie Wallace, model Caprice and singer Cheryl Baker.

The target again this year was to raise significant funds for Help a London Child supporting children in London dealing with abuse, illness, disability and homelessness.

The charity relies on donations, and events such as this ball to sustain the funding it needs to help the children.

Enzo Testa, Executive Managing Director of Archant London said: "The evening was a huge success and we received excellent feedback from those who attended.

"Despite the credit crunch, the 'money can't buy' auction items and the raffle prizes enabled us to raise significant funds for this extremely worthwhile cause.
