As some of you may remember, we held a competition at the end of the Svengali tour last year for people to win one of three large billboards that were displayed at the theatre.

We asked everyone to tell us what they would do with the board if they won it, and a lovely lady called Jackie wanted to win the board so she could put it in a charity auction to support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Here’s a little more on them:

Since it was established in 1964, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has actively supported excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families. We are the only UK-wide charity focusing solely on CF.
We believe that everybody living with CF deserves the best possible quality of life with access to the best quality care and with a real hope for a better future. We will support them and their families to make this happen.
To do this, we fund high quality research to understand CF better and to develop new and better treatments, we set standards of CF care and review services to make sure they are meeting those standards, and we provide information and advice to people with CF and their families.

If you’re interested in supporting this worthy cause, and owning a unique Derren Brown billboard, The auction is now live and can be found on this link:

Happy bidding! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d love it if we could see more of this semi-regularly, maybe a new poster every 6-12 months รขโ‚ฌยฆ we could do it for charity every time.

That’s real nice of the lady, I wish I had the money to buy it though, ah never mind, as soon as I’m influential, famous and rich people will be wanting billboards of me, what comes around goes around, right? Legend you, Derren Brown!

Derren, thank you for helping in supporting and raising awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. After a tricky week health wise from my hospital bed in Papworth. Knowing that deeds of kindness by friends and yourself to raise money for the trust makes my fight to find a cure and live every day to the full so worth while. Today like every day, I may be struggling to breath but there’s a smile now firmly on my face. Thanks again so much. Sammie x
