One of the lots in the sale was the chance to canvass with Zac Goldsmith

From 20 tickets to an Adele concert, to the chance to go canvassing with London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith - which raised £35,000 ($50,466) - there were some exciting lots on offer.

The Black and White Ball takes place every year in London, offering a chance for wealthy donors to hobnob with Conservative politicians and fill the party's coffers.

We have Margaret Thatcher's lipstick print on a napkin for sale.
