27 August, 2020: St John Ambulance is delighted to be taking part in The Massive Get Together, a one-of-a-kind online charity event taking place on Thursday September 17, 2020 at 8pm.
Joining forces with nine other charities that have suffered financially as a result of COVID-19, we will benefit from an exciting evening of laughs, prizes and music - live and online, to an anticipated audience of more than 20,000.
TV and radio presenters Gaby Roslin and Amanda Byram will be hosting the star-studded event with musical performances from the likes of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Myleene Klass, and Nadine Coyle; there will be comedy from Nina Conti and appearances from ‘80s legend Chesney Hawkes and the inimitable Basil Brush, to name but a few.
There are plenty of surprises in store during what will be a relaxed, collaborative and fun variety show, hoping to raise more than £500,000 to help ten great causes. There will be something for everyone, including number one hits, comedy and surprise special guest appearances.
All proceeds will be split between the ten charities involved: St John Ambulance, Marie Curie, The Children’s Trust, FareShare, Royal Voluntary Service, Love Your Neighbour, Crisis, The Conservation Volunteers, Thames Hospice and Volunteering Matters.
For just £10, audiences will be supporting all 10 incredible UK charities, making a positive difference within action against homelessness and hunger, protecting the vulnerable, connecting communities, supporting end of life care and volunteer provision, as well as helping emergency and crisis response services.
