Twinkly sack-full of presents in Christmas charity auction…

Jack Wilshere 1

From online Bollywood dance classes to a video call from England footballer Jack Wilshere, Muscular Dystrophy UK is offering a twinkly sack-full of online Christmas presents to bid for through the MDUK website.

The MDUK online auction is a great way to find wonderful presents, from cookery and crafting classes to signed sports memorabilia, and a range of accessible adventures.

It’s really easy to take part, you’ll get your gifts in good time for Christmas, and – at no additional cost – you’ll get that money-can’t-buy reward of knowing you’re supporting people with muscle-wasting conditions too.

Special Events Manager at Muscular Dystrophy UK, Lorna Poultney said:

“Every gift you buy will help us to support people with muscle-wasting conditions through our helpline and our up-to-date information and guidance, for which we’ve had a 40 percent increase in demand this year.

Many of the people who contact us are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable and at high risk from COVID-19, which is why it is particularly important to support them at this time.

The auction will be live on Friday 4 December and closing on Thursday 10th December The link to take part is: There is an amazing range of prizes

About Muscular Dystrophy UK

Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity for the 70,000 people living with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK. We bring together and support people affected by more than 60 rare and very rare progressive muscle-weakening and wasting conditions. We are facing the biggest threat in our 60 years with the loss of half our forecast fundraised income (£2.8m), just when our help is most critically needed by those that we serve.
