Celebrities donate unique experiences to our new auction
Our Never Alone auction starts today and runs until Wednesday 17 June, with all proceeds going to support people living with MS during the coronavirus pandemic.
Song-writing session, cookery lesson, writing masterclass
Items up for auction include:
- a private song-writing session with Emeli Sandé
- an exclusive cookery lesson with Dave Myers from The Hairy Bikers
- a beginner’s writing masterclass with author Jacqueline Wilson
- a 30 minute personal make-up tutorial with YouTube royalty Nic Haste
- a virtual writing session with Masta Ace
- a full set of Game Of Thrones books, signed by Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, and many more.
Many of the celebrities involved have a personal connection to MS. Dave Myers’ mum lived with the condition, and he cared for her from the age of eight. Nic Haste revealed her own MS diagnosis in 2017, in an emotional YouTube video.
"We could end up writing the next big hit"
Emeli Sandé said of her donation: “People should bid on this prize most importantly to raise funds for such a valuable cause, but I also think it’s going to be a lot of fun. To me the most exciting part in the whole music process is that initial jam, that initial spark of an idea, when something comes completely from nowhere.
"I’m excited to see how we will work together, and just to share my process with someone will be real joy for me. You never know, we could end up writing the next big hit.."
Providing better support to people with MS
Our Chief Executive Nick Moberly said:
“We’re incredibly grateful to all the celebrities who’ve generously offered time and donations to this auction, and hope people will bid generously.
"The money raised from the event will help us provide better support to people living with MS, through things like our free MS helpline, and could truly give someone the lifeline they need to cope at this difficult time.”
We don’t want anyone in our MS community to feel alone during this crisis. And that means we need your support.
We’re rapidly expanding our services and tailoring them so anyone who needs us can get help online or over the phone.
Our MS Helpline has seen a big increase in calls - we want to answer every single one.
Will you help us be there for everyone by making a donation?
