Prince William‘s girlfriend Kate Middleton and Sir Richard Branson‘s doctor daughter Holly Branson went retro for charity on Wednesday. The pair were shimmery and shiny at the Renaissace Rooms in London’s Vauxhall for Day-Glo Charity Roller Disco, a benefit for a new surgical ward at the Children’s Hospital in Oxford.

Kate organized the event (perhaps at the urging of the Queen?) in memory of a friend. In fact, she’s planning on calling the new ward “Tom’s Ward” after her friend Thomas Waley-Cohen, who died of bone cancer in 2004. Holly and Tom’s brother, Sam, helped organize the charity event.

Place2Be, an organization that gives counseling services to victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse in 130 UK schools, is also receiving donations from the event.
