Stars including Sir Michael Caine, Helena Bonham Carter, Colin Firth and Damian Lewis helped raise more than $2.2 million (?1.4 million) for U.K. charity Save The Children at a glitzy London benefit on Wednesday (12Mar13).

The star-studded crowd donned colourful outfits for the reggae-themed bash at the Roundhouse venue in Camden, where 500 guests gathered for a charity auction.

Madness and Jimmy Cliff were among the night's performers, while Jamaican reggae singer Dawn Penn teamed up with Ub40's Ali Campbell for a rendition of Sonny and Cher track I Got You Babe.

Other guests included Bonham Carter's Burton and Taylor co-star Dominic West and Lewis' wife, Harry Potter star Helen McCrory.

The donations were pulled in through ticket sales and the auctioning of prizes such as a huge portrait of Bob Marley and a vacation at the Golden Eye Resort in Jamaica, the one-time home of James Bond writer Ian Fleming.
