The annual supper club event for HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust raised £90,000 on Tuesday evening.

The yearly event saw 50 dinner parties taking place simultaneously in the capital’s best restaurants and private homes.

Attendees included prime minister Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah, Cilla Black, Chris Bryant MP, Graham Norton and Gail Porter.

Brown tweeted her support for the occasion, congratulating organiser Daniel Hopwood on the sum raised.

After dinner, guests were chauffeur driven to a party at Cuban venue Floridita for a carnival of champagne and cocktails. Guests were also treated to exclusive performances by Alphabeat and DJ Danny Rampling.

All of the restaurants involved donated their services free of charge.

Debbie Holmes, director of fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust said: “This year, the supper club has been bigger than ever before, with over 600 guests, more than 50 dinners, and an amazing live set from Alphabeat.

“All the money raised will go directly towards our vital work supporting people living with, or affected by HIV, so we’re delighted that the event was so well supported.”
