A huge charity event is set to take place in Dubai, to coincide with the International Film Festival.

People taking flights to Dubai soon could be lucky enough to spot some famous faces as they attend a charity gala event.

Organised to coincide with the Dubai International Film Festival which is currently taking place in the emirate, The One Night to Change Lives gala is being co-hosted by the Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen.

Charities Oxfam and Dubai Cares will be benefitting from all funds raised, with celebrity prizes up for grabs, including tickets to the world premiere of the new Avengers film and a chance to meet its star Scarlett Johansson.

Hosted by Ronan Keating, Helena Christiansen and Bollywood actor Rahul Bose, the event will also offer the chance to adopt a school in Pakistan, which will guarantee the education of 200 girls.

Some of the people planning to take flights to Dubai to attend the event could be among those who plan to use the new baggage delivery service which has been introduced by Emirates.
