A star-studded celebrity lunch raised more than £5,000 for a charity that supports dying children.

Former stunt motorcyclist Eddie Kidd was one of the VIP guests at Celebrity Charity Lunch and auction held at the Marriott Hotel in Swiss Cottage on April 2. 

The event, organised by Lord Martyn Rose in aid of Little Havens Children's Hospice, was also attended by celebrities including boxer John Conteh, who acted as auctioneer, Ann Hegerty from ITV's The Chase, singers Anita Harris and Patti Boulaye, and soap stars Frazer Hines and Bhaska Patel. 

Former stunt performer Eddie was paralysed and suffered brain damage following an accident in 1996.

He was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to charity in 2012.

Traveling Wilburys tribute band the Trembling Wilburys performed at the event.

David Stark, drummer for the Trembling Wilburys who lives in Belsize Park, said the event was a "big success".

Little Havens, based in Essex, provides palliative nursing and supportive care to babies, children and teenagers living with complex or incurable conditions.
