Pick up some vintage clothing as worn by the celebs

Want to get your hands on some vintage clothing previously worn by celebrities such as Ronan Keating and supermodel Jean Shrimpton?

Well now you can because famous faces have been donating their personal items for a one-off charity auction to help fund the expansion of Sue Ryder’s Dee View Court, a specialist neurological centre in Kincorth, Aberdeen.

All the money raised will support the expansion of the centre, which is the only one of its kind in Scotland and provides care for people aged 18+ living with life-changing neurological conditions such as brain injuries, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, stroke and motor neurone disease.

It’s hoped the expansion will give more people a chance to get the most out of life by giving them the care they need and deserve.

The charity needs to raise £3.9 million to build the extension and provide further services for people with neurological conditions in Scotland.  The auction is just one of the initiative planneds to reach the overall target and realise the expansion.

Kate Moss, Gillian Anderson, Eddie Redmayne, Jean Shrimpton, Sam Smith, Daniel Radcliffe, Susie Cave, and Iskra Lawrence have all donated personal items to the auction to show their support for the charity.

Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne has donated a signed copy of his original script from The Theory of Everything, the biopic of Professor Stephen Hawking, who lived with MND (Motor Neurone Disease) for most of his adult life.

Eddie, who was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Professor Hawking, said: “It seemed a fitting tribute to the memory of Stephen, to donate my signed script from The Theory of Everything to Sue Ryder. The charity provides vital support to people living with MND and I’m delighted that funds raised from my donation will help to support people living with this and other life-changing conditions.”
