Stars from the hit period drama Downton Abbey lent their support to the Chilterns MS Centre by attending a glitzy dinner.

Rob James-Collier, who plays under-butler Thomas Barrow and Allen Leech, who plays former chauffeur Branson, who is now part of the Grantham family in the show, hosted the evening at Hedsor House.

Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary, Jim Carter who plays Carson, Phyllis Logan who plays Mrs Hughes, Lesley Nichol who plays Mrs Patmore and Sophie McShera who plays Daisy also attended the event, which included a charity auction.

Robert Breakwell, chief executive of the Chilterns MS Centre, said: “It is not often that a small, local charity like the Chilterns MS Centre is supported by the cast of a global TV phenomenon. I would sincerely like to thanks the cast for making this possible.”
