This is not just a donation, it’s an M&S donation
Our patron Eddie Redmayne has chosen the MND Association to receive a donation after featuring in the M&S Christmas food advertising campaign.
The Oscar winner is one of nine actors who have voiced adverts in M&S Food’s Christmas campaign. Each actor has been invited to select charities close to their hearts to receive a donation from M&S Food.
Eddie’s adverts hit the small screen the weekend before Christmas and focus on desserts including a chocolate orange Christmas pudding.
“I am so pleased to be part of this year’s M&S Food Christmas Campaign. Having the chance to support these charities with a donation and highlight the very important causes they support too.”
Chief executive of the MND Association Sally Light said:
“We’re supported thousands of people affected by MND through a difficult year. Thanks to donations like this we’re here to help those who need us during the festive season and beyond.”
Customers and M&S Food colleagues have also been given a chance to choose charities to receive a donation, with the retailer’s Christmas advertising campaign set to donate £1million to good causes.
This Christmas, we’re donating £2 million to good causes chosen by the nine world-famous icons voicing our festive videos.
