Celebrity support for Secret World's annual auction and ball

Several well-known celebrities are backing Secret World Wildlife Rescue's annual Auction and Ball, which is set to take place on October 1st at the Webbington Hotel.

With many celebrity patrons and connections with other stars that support their work, Secret World's silent auction will include signed memorabilia from David Attenborough, Brian May, Chris Packham, Martin Hugh Games, Paul Martin, Marcus Trescothic, Jilly Cooper, Mike Dilger and Alan Titchmarsh.

There will also be a chance for a 'Wildlife Package with accommodation for 2 nights, a day behind the scenes at Secret World, An Owl Prowl with Chris Sperring M.B.E. and a Dawn to Mid-day with Simon King O.B.E.

There will be many other fantastic main auction items including a personally signed photo of Brian May playing on top of Parliament.

Pollyanna Pickering will be attending the event and Tom Heap will be the compere for the evening.

This will be a glittering event with a Chinese theme with a three course meal, auction and silent auction, cabaret, casino and dancing.

It will be a fun-packed evening from 6.30pm through to 1am, with tickets priced at £40 each and available by contacting Secret World on 01278 783250 or by email at:

David Foulds, CEO for the charity, said: "This event gives people a chance to have fun whilst also raising much needed funds for our charity's work."

"It is wonderful that so many well-known personalities are supporting us, either by coming along in person or by sending items to be auctioned."

"Our work is so important, and it is always reassuring to know that celebrities and professionals in the field are supportive of our efforts."

"This will be the first time I have attended a Secret World ball, having joined the charity this summer, and I am looking forward to a superb evening."
