Our employees of the year had a great time at the When You Wish Upon a Star's 20th Black & White Ball on Saturday night.

The team snapped some great celeb selfies with stars such as Saracen from Gladiators, Nikki Sanderson from Hollyoaks, Will Mellor and the singer Carly Paoli.

A fabulous dinner and bubbly was followed by dancing into the night with some 'special moves' from Adam in Customer Services.

Umbrella.co.uk are proud to support and fundraise for this amazing charity who continue to grant the wishes of children living with life threatening illnesses.

The 2016 Umbrella.co.uk ‘Employees of the Month’ were rewarded with a ticket to the When You Wish Upon a Star charity ball last Saturday night.

A spectacular welcome by storm troopers and Darth Vader was followed by a champagne reception, superhero glitter booth, dinner and entertainment.

Batman, Cat Woman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman all partied with Umbrella.co.uk staff along with a host of Corrie and Emmerdale stars until the early hours.  

Some of the Umbrella.co.uk ladies were left a little hot under the collar by Spiderman’s superhero outfit and Louise took a shine to Batman! Matt and Steve were caught on video perfectly executing the Spice girls A-Z Rap and Annie bagged the most celebrity selfies.

Nick Holmes, Umbrella.co.uk CEO, presented Jen Hughes, Regional Fundraiser, and the Wish Bear a cheque at our Wilmslow head office.

"Thank you so much to all the staff at Umbrella.co.uk. The money you have raised will help to grant a magical wish for a very deserving child and will give their family memories to last a lifetime."  Jen Hughes
