One of Britain’s most loved female stars, Alison Moyet, starred at the annual Prince's Trust Diamond Ball last week, helping to raise almost £50,000 for disadvantaged young people.

The singer put on an exclusive performance for hundreds of guests at the prestigious fundraiser at St George’s Hall, in the heart of Liverpool.

The event raised almost £50,000 for The Trust, to support disadvantaged young people across the north west into work, training or education.

Alison, who is an Ambassador for the youth charity, said: “I was delighted to be able to perform in Liverpool to raise money for The Prince’s Trust. It was a fantastic event and the money raised will really make a difference to disadvantaged people across the north west.”

An auction on the evening offered guests the opportunity to win an array of exclusive prizes, including tickets to The X Factor final in Manchester, an exclusive insight behind the scenes of the Sky Sports Gillette Soccer Saturday programme and a three-day luxury holiday for two in any of the Small Luxury Hotels worldwide portfolio.

Guests also had the chance to win a £10,000 item of diamond jewellery generously donated by exclusive jewellers and long term sponsor of The Diamond Ball, David M Robinson.

The Diamond Ball, which is considered by many to be the highlight of Liverpool’s Christmas social calendar, returned to St George’s Hall for the ninth year running.

Since it started the event has raised almost £400,000 for The Trust’s work across the region.

The prestigious black tie event included a Laurent-Perrier Champagne reception, followed by a festive four course meal before the entertainment began.

North West Development Committee member of The Prince’s Trust and founder of The Diamond Ball, Steve Sealey, said: “The support of people like Alison is invaluable to us and we are delighted that she came to perform for us at what was, yet again, a very successful event.”

Other performances on the night came from the amazing Calday Grange Grammar School Choir and Merseyside’s very own crooner Scott Chapman.
