THE EVENT, now in its 14th year, raised more than £90,000 to support people living with and affected by HIV.

Guests attended 50 dinner parties at some of London’s most iconic restaurants, including Roast, Wilton’s, Polpo, Aqua Shard, and Scott’s, which all donated a meal in support of the charity.

Afterwards guests were whisked away to a star-studded after-party at the Underglobe where they enjoyed entertainment by British singer-song writer Chloe Howl, Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist La Voix and boylesque troop Briefs.

Guests were also treated to cocktails by 6 O’Clock Gin and took part in the Supper Club’s silent auction, which boasted an array of bespoke foodie prizes, including a chocolate making master class with acclaimed chocolatier Paul A Young, dinner at home catered by Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett, and the chance to create a bespoke brownie flavour with Bad Brownie.

Sonya Trivedy, Director of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “Thank you to everyone who has once again made the Supper Club’such a huge success and another night to remember. Each year our supporters came out in full force to help us raise awareness for the work that we do, and this year was no different.  We are really lucky to have support  from  such exceptional people, who once again have helped us  raise a phenomenal amount  for people living with and affected by HIV in the UK.”
