KATE Moss and Eddie Redmayne are among a number of celebrities who have donated personal items to be sold at a charity auction.
Proceeds from the sale, which also includes a signed Gareth Bale Real Madrid shirt, is part of a bid to raise £3.9 million to extend Sue Ryder’s neurological care centre in Aberdeen.
Model Moss donated a signed copy of her book Kate, and the actor a signed copy of his original script from The Theory of Everything, the Stephen Hawking biopic.
Redmayne said: “I’m delighted that funds raised from my donation will help to support people living with motor neurone disease and other life-changing conditions.”
A blind auction is live at www.givergy.com/charity/sue-ryder and bids can be placed until 11.59pm on Monday. Holly Spiers, Sue Ryder’s director of hospices and fundraising, said: “We hope this will really put Sue Ryder on the map when it comes to charity retail, while also raising vital funds so we can provide more palliative, neurological and bereavement care.” [Source]
