Top celebs were out in force at a glitzy fundraising do organised by Sunseeker Sales Group.

The event raised more than £23,000 for SSG’s chosen charity SPARKS (Sport Aiding Medical Research for Kids) on Saturday 25 March.

It also marked the launch of the company’s 2006 event schedule, which includes cruises and events throughout the year for Sunseeker owners.

The black tie evening at Banqueting House, Whitehall Palace, was attended by around 250 guests, with SPARKS’ celebrity supporters Kevin Whately, Robert Powell, Floella Benjamin, PH Moriarty and Tiff Needell.

Dominic Byrne, managing director of Sunseeker Sales Group, said: “This has been a fabulous event to celebrate the beginning of the Sunseeker 2006 boating season, and we are very grateful to our guests, who along with us at Sunseeker, have shown tremendous support for a very worthwhile charity.”

Highlights included a celebrity auction ranging from the chance to test drive the latest Ferrari with former racing driver Tiff Needell and the opportunity to appear in film The Riddle, a new British thriller starring Vinnie Jones, Sir Derek Jacobi, Vanessa Redgrave and PH Moriarty.
