Rankin, Rita Ora and Kate Moss join Sightsavers’ eBay auctions

January 2019
A collection of the items that Sightsavers is auctioning, including signed shoes, records and books.

Fancy swapping jokes with Romesh Ranganathan? Having a one-on-one photography session with Rankin? Or enjoying a pre-gig gossip with Rita Ora?

Perhaps you’d like to spend the morning watching Lorraine Kelly as she films her ITV show, or take a trip to the theatre with Haydn Gwynne?

Sightsavers is making these dream experiences a reality for fans by teaming up with eBay for its latest celebrity auction. From 22 February to 3 March, fans can visit the auction at www.ebay.co.uk/sightsavers and bid on the opportunity to win these up-close-and-personal experiences with the stars.

Lorraine Kelly said: “Since starting my work with Sightsavers eight years ago, I’ve seen the massive difference they’ve made to people with visual impairments in so many countries. There’s more to do and I’m happy to be involved.”

All money raised through the auction will go towards Sightsavers’ End is in Sight appeal, which aims to eliminate blinding trachoma. This agonising disease is the world’s leading infectious cause of blindness and has existed for thousands of years. Yet it is completely preventable and elimination is now only a few years away. It costs Sightsavers just 15p to protect someone from trachoma for a year.
