DEBRA’s Butterfly Ball was held in London on 16th June and raised over £60,000.  The menu was specially created by top chefs Simon Young, Ashely Palmer-Watts and Tom Kerridge, and speeches were given by James Dunn, who recently featured in the BBC show The Big Life Fix with Simon Reeve, Simon Reeve (on video link) and Georgia Bath, who has been a DEBRA fundraiser since losing her daughter to Epidermolysis Bullosa.
