Auction lots include a backstage meet & greet with Ed Sheeran in Dublin, plus the chance to walk the red carpet and be at the Breaking Dawn – Part Two premiere. Listeners could see Example at the Stereosonic Festival in Sydney.
Dalton Leong, Managing Director of Help a Capital Child said: “This month marks a year since we launched our first ever Capital FM network charity appeal, which was a huge success and raised over £180,000. Through the great work of our charity, we’re delighted to continue to support the work of Teenager Cancer Trust, making such a difference to so many young people living with cancer across the UK. I am confident that this year’s appeal will create another landmark and we thank our amazing listeners for getting involved.”
