Helen Mirren said of the Turn2us’ No Cold Homes campaign: “There are so many people who can’t afford the basic essentials like a warm home and food for their families. That’s why the Turn2us No Cold Homes campaign is so important and I’m pleased to play a part in helping more families get the vital help they need this winter.”
The auction will be hosted on eBay from Monday 30th November to Wednesday 9th December 2015. For more information, visit www.turn2us.org.uk/NoColdHomes.
