Last Years Event

Held for the first time at the beautiful Park Lane Hotel, the Celebrity Christmas Stocking Auction’s night of jazz suited the 1920s interior perfectly. The stunning silver and pink decor instantly transported guests through to the glamorous evening that was to come. Welcomed by saxophonist George Winstone, guests enjoyed a champagne reception whilst taking part in a luxury lucky dip beautifully displayed two Nordmann Fir Christmas trees, kindly donated by Pines and Neeldes.

The evening was expertly hosted by comedian Rufus Hound who was greeted with laughter and anticipation for the entertainment to begin. Our first act, Flash Mob Jazz surprised the audience with a magical rendition of Benny Goodman’s Sing Sing Sing. Shortly followed by an inspiring speech from Macmillan’s Chairman, Julia Palca, about the work that Macmillan carries out, guests were ready to start fundraising and enjoy an exceptional meal.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity to bid on our Silent Auction, kindly facilitated by Givergy. The incredible prizes ranged from skiing holidays in the French Alps, luxury dining and art works especially designed by Dan Llywelyn Hall for the event.

The highlight for the evening had to be the incredible Live Auction which stared celebrity stockings from Jim Carter, Jason Donovan, Samantha Bond, Camilla Kerslake, Tony Iommi, Naomie Harris, Alfred Molina, Joanna Lumley, and the Ultimate Sports Stocking including a private boxing lesson with Carl Froch for 10 people. The Live Auction alone raised an amazing £80,000 with unbelievable prizes such as a tour around the James Bond Museum with Naomie Harris, a two week holiday to Laos and Cambodia, home dining for 8 people with celebrity chef Ching He Huang and Business Class Flights to see Black Sabbath in New York.

Sotheby's Auctioneer Edward Rising, captivated the room with his extraordinary energy and skill. At the end of the auction guests were reminded why their generosity was so important to Macmillan with an inspirational speech from Julia Fenton about her cancer experience. Following this Edward Rising helped to raise a record breaking amount for our Fund a Nurse Pledge, a staggering £53,700. This will pay for a Macmillan nurse for a year and enable us to reach out to even more people affected by cancer.

Thank you and Congratulations to those who were successful in the Auction and to everyone involved for making the Celebrity Christmas Stocking Auction such a memorable evening.
