Virtual auction fundraiser being held to raise money for Surrey children’s hospice

Published by Lettie Buxton at 6:00am 1st August 2020.

A special virtual fundraiser is being hosted this August in support of Surrey-based Shooting Star Children's Hospices.

Tony Hadley, vice president of the charity, will be the host and will perform duets with special guests, including patron Michael Ball, Shane Richie and Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman Ricky Wilson.

The fundraiser will be available online from today (1 August) until 16 August.

By making a minimum donation of £5 on the online auction site, participants will be sent a link to watch the exclusive duets.

The fundraiser will be presented by comedian Joel Dommett with contributions from the charity’s royal patron HRH The Countess of Wessex, vice presidents Dame Joan Collins and Simon Cowell, and patrons Philip Glenister and Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen.  

There is also a chance to bid for some exclusive items in the online auction, including a one-off Dynasty jigsaw puzzle donated by Dame Joan Collins.

Tony Hadley, who was awarded an MBE in the 2020 New Year Honours List for his charitable services and support of outstanding work of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, said:

"I’m so proud to be part of the Shooting Star Children’s Hospices family and I’ve seen first-hand the significant difference the charity makes to families who need their care and support.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has had such a far-reaching affect on so many charities and it would be unthinkable for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices to no longer exist.  

"I’m thrilled that so many of my co Vice-Presidents, Patrons and friends have joined me to help with this fundraiser.  

"It’s been great fun dueting with Michael, Shane and Ricky."
