POP superstars Liberty X teamed up with Shola Ama and Gok Wan in Manchester recently to help the Sedulo Foundation raise £125,000 for young people in the North West.
The Sedulo Foundation Colour Ball, hosted by soap royalty Sally Lindsay and attended by stars such as Denise Welch, Seema Malhotra and boxing legend David Haye, will fund youth organisations in the region as well as charitable projects aiming to increase the life chances of youngsters facing disadvantages.
Liberty X, who now tours with Dancing on Ice star Michelle Heaton and original band members Jessica Taylor and Kelli Young, brought the roof down with a headline set which included hits such as Just A Little, Got To Have Your Love and A Night to Remember.
Shola Ama opened the show with the iconic anthem Might Need Somebody, while TV personalities Dr Ranj and Claire Sweeney partied late into the night following a fabulous DJ set from TV fashion guru Gok Wan.
The Sedulo Foundation has already helped over 2,500 young people through projects to provide back-to-school essentials as well as working to end period poverty by providing sanitary products. The business also leads an annual Christmas Toy Appeal from its offices throughout the country.
Paul Cheetham-Karcz, founder of the Sedulo Foundation, said:
“It was a true honour and privilege to be involved with such an inspirational initiative from the Sedulo Foundation.
“The vital funds raised this evening will go a long, long way to help and inspire young people in the Manchester and North West region.
“I am proud that some of the biggest names in entertainment, media and sport attended to raise vital funds.
“By helping disadvantaged children and young people in these regions, I believe we can motivate the talent of tomorrow to fulfil their potential and aim higher.
“I am proud of the work already achieved by the Sedulo Foundation and the Colour Ball will help us reach even more young people in the long term.”
