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.
Access to the event will be via a unique code, which will be made available in return for a £10 donation at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/the-massive-get-together.
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.
