Chart-topper Diana Vickers gave a stunning performance at an event to raise funds for four-year-old Tilley Lockey from County Durham, who lost her hands to meningitis at the age of 17 months.


The Diamond Ball was held at the Hilton Hotel, Gateshead during meningitis awareness week in September.


In addition to Diana, who performed songs from her number one album, guests were treated to performances by Emily McNamee from Bad Lashes and West End Guys n Dolls.


During the event, bespoke diamond jewellery along with celebrity hand prints and other money-cant-buy items were auctioned.


Since Tillys illness, mum Sarah and her husband, Adam, have dedicated themselves to raising money to afford Tilly the best prosthetic hands available. Their Give Tilly A Hand campaign has seen them raise nearly 200,000 to date.
