Since Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown was moving herself from the UK to the US, she found that keeping her English manor’s contents was one household too many – so she auctioned everything on eBay and donated the proceeds to CLIC Sargent.
Brown’s motorbike, grand piano, furniture, clothing and Spice Girl paraphernalia translated into thousands of pounds for the children’s cancer charity. Where every day ten children are diagnosed with cancer, CLIC Sargent aims to provide financial and practical support to families through specialist care in hospital and home.
Brown was proud to contribute to something meaningful, Evening News 24 reported. “The older you get, the more you realise that if people are giving you something, you have a responsibility to do something in return, by lending your time and name and support.”
