Hogwarts magic was in the air at Manchester Universitys Whitworth Hall as 240 guests raised funds for the Beat eating disorders charity.
The ball, with a Harry Potter theme, was held in the memory of Emma Egerton, a talented teenager, who died in 2010 aged just 18 of a fatal reaction to peanuts brought on by bulimia.
Her dad, Chief Inspector John Egerton of Greater Manchester Police is part of a small team consisting of Emma`s mum, Serena Ronan, Rick Farrow, Fiona Murray, Chief Inspector Donna Allen, Rachel Yorke and Chief Inspector David Gilbride who have set up Emma`s Fund which aims to support the eating disorder charity Beat and help maintain their frontline services.
And he was bowled over by the generous support he received for the cause from Dr Jackie Campbell of Faddies dry cleaners, Top Notch Events, Tableart and photography from www.paulmansfieldmanchesterphoto.com
