Roberts Bakery hosted its first charity ball on Saturday (24 September), in aid of The Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Appeal, and raised more than £21,000 for the cause.

Broadcaster Gordon Burns was among the 250 guests at the charity ball, with TV and radio presenter Michelle Eagleton acting as compere for the evening.

It was held at Cranage Hall in Holmes Chapel, and included dinner, dancing and live entertainment from singer Cole Page.

A silent auction raised £15,000, with prizes including a cricket bat signed by Kevin Pieterson, and a five-day cruise around Croatia on board the luxury yacht Mystique.

Roberts also made special heart-shaped chocolate biscuits especially for the ball.
