To mark the Multiple Sclerosis Society's 60th birthday, celebrities and artists have been designing unique cards for the MS Society to auction on eBay.

Famous names supporting ‘Cards for a Cause’ include Sir Roger Moore, Jamie Oliver, Olympic Gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Richard E. Grant, Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville, Janis Winehouse, Alan Shearer, Sir Chris Hoy, Lorraine Kelly, Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, author Sophie Kinsella, Oritsé Williams from JLS and Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

The auction runs until December 12.

The auction launched on eBay on Monday 2 December, the date of the MS Society’s 60th anniversary, and will be live for 10 days.

The aim is to raise money and awareness in the charity’s 60th year. All the money will be spent on the MS Society’s pioneering research programme.

Michelle Mitchell is the Chief Executive of the MS Society: "We’re incredibly grateful to all the celebrities and famous names who’ve taken the time to design a card for the MS Society’s Cards for a Cause auction.

“Every penny raised will go towards our innovative research programme. While we strive for a cure for MS we are also funding studies to slow or halt the progression of the condition as well as improving the quality of life of people affected by MS.”
