The trust was founded in memory of Michelle Jurd, a former RAF navigator and mother of two young girls following her death in 2009.
The Trust raises money for military charities, and to promote adventurous training for young people; the event raised more than £25,000.
The ball was hosted by Colonel Neil Jurd, and guests included Mrs Claire Hensman the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria, Charles Hadcock DL, Lancashire-based sculptor, Lieutenant General Richard Wardlaw, and Jordan Wylie, from Channel 4's Hunted Programme.
Guests had the opportunity to bid for an exciting range of prizes including a signed Anthony Joshua boxing glove and a bottle of SAS whisky.
