An Aston Martin experience, health spa trips, a Spy Games experience and a VIP theatre trip and dinner were just some of the items under the hammer at an auction presided over by Bid-Up.tv star Mark Rise, at The Money Centre&#39s second annual Charity Ball.

Held recently at the Hilton Hotel in Norwich, the Charity Ball attracted more than 160 guests to the black tie event which had a James Bond theme. The auction and raffle raised in excess of £6,500 for two local charities, the East Anglia Air Ambulance and the East Anglia Children&#39s

Hospices.

Organised and hosted by The Money Centre&#39s PR executive Victoria Lake, the ball was attended by local and national names from the financial industry together with other businesses, many of which work with The Money Centre. Guests represented organisations including Xbridge, NatWest, GMAC RFC and Mortgage Express. The event was filmed by Shine TV for a documentary on the working British, commissioned by Sky Television.
