Great Britain's Paralympic team were treated to a ball in their honour last night (September 5) at the Grosvenor House as a celebration of their achievements in the London 2012 Paralympic games.

All proceeds from the event went into funding the British Paralympic Association (BPA) and the IPC's Agitos Foundation, designed to help create more sporting activities for young disabled people.

The ball was attended by a number of GB Paralympians who all got a chance to flash their gleaming medals again as they arrived, including triple gold medal winner Sophie Christiansen, discus champion Aled Davies, equestrian title holders Deb Criddle, Sophie Wells and Lee Pearson.
