Raising money for Hospice in the Weald with a little help from our friends

Raising money for Hospice in the Weald with a little help from our friends

Davina McCall is the first celebrity to contribute to ‘Celebrity Squares’ auction.

For two days in October, supporters of Hospice in the Weald will have an opportunity to bid for some unique and personal items donated by well-loved celebrities.

Each year, Hospice in the Weald comes up with ingenious ways of raising the £5 million needed to enable them to provide free care and support for patients, their families and carers. This year is no exception. Celebrity donations will be displayed in a ‘Celebrity Square’ in the School Room of the Brew House Hotel in Tunbridge Wells on 10th and 11th October. Anyone will be able to view and bid for the items at the venue or online. The auction will close on at 10pm on the evening of 11th October.

The first donation has come from the fabulous Davina McCall who has generously donated the animal print Michael Kors dress and shoes worn at the BAFTA ceremony, saying that she “felt drop dead gorgeous in it” and hopes that who ever bids for it will feel the same. Davina is happy to support Hospice in the Weald as she believes it to be “A fantastic organisation, through and through”.

‘Celebrity Squares’ will be part of a larger exhibition of art by renowned contemporary artists curated by Mark Paul Perry and Guy Portelli VPRBA, FRBS. These will be on sale and a generous commission will be donated to Hospice in the Weald.

All proceeds raised by the ‘Celebrity Squares’ auction will go direct to the Hospice thanks to the generous support from Evernden Interiors and Standen Hodgson Chartered Surveyors.
