'Together for Short Lives' Charity Ball

Amanda attended the 'Together for short lives' midsummer charity ball this week, having been invited by the charities Patron - Simon Cowell.

Simon hosted the ball in support of seriously ill children and their families. They raised an amazing £400,000 on the night which will be used to help families get the care and support they need to make the most of precious time together.

Amanda wore a stunning yellow dress which was made for her by designer David Boughton. David started out at Epsom school of Art and Design and since graduating has worked for the likes of Elizabeth Emanuel, Bellville Sassoon and Petite Salope as well dressing some celebrities for red carpet. He now works in the Alexander McQueen Couture department and is definitely one to watch out for!

Simon Cowell said: “Working with Together for Short Lives has undoubtedly changed my life. Please give this incredible charity your support and together we can make every moment count for seriously ill children and their families.”

Marvin and Rochelle Humes were in charge of the nights entertainment, introducing talent including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra, Katie Melua, Stephen Mulhern and BGT's Jack Pack.
