On Wednesday 24th December some of QVC’s biggest names are coming together to do their bit for charity. The likes of Kipling, bareMinerals, Richard Jackson, Yankee Candle and Clogau will all be donating proceeds to their chosen charities – Alder Hey Children’s Charity, Cots for Tots, Greenfingers, Look Good…Feel Better and Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice. To show your support, simply find your favourite brand and buy items from our special QVC Cares selections, or simply donate online. Our Today’s Special Value offer comes from Richard Jackson and for every item bought, our gardening expert will donate £1 to Greenfingers.

    Fantastic that QVC supports this charity giving. I would personally like to ask if it would be possible in the future to include the Multiple Sclerosis Charity in future events.
    My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis some 22years ago – yes I am lucky to still have him but this very cruel disease has taken away his “Life” is so many ways. He travelled the world and gave everything he had probably the original Work Hard Play Hard individual. Playing squash, golf. Now due to relapses and remissions he has difficulty walking, remembering and is often in persistent pain.
    Sadly MS does not seem to get much publicity but it effects many people in the UK and the charity deserves more support. Thank you for listening. Vanessa

    I have just read the email from Vanessa. My Dad had Multiple Sclerosis for over 40 years. Fortunately my Mum managed to keep him out of a wheel chair by putting him on a gluten free diet. But it was very hard for our family at first, because then nobody had heard of MS, so people thought he was drunk, and they stared all the time. My sister and I were only young, and Mum didn’t explain his illness to us until we were older, and could understand. The doctors didn’t know how to treat him. My Mum had to go into Liverpool every fortnight to a health food shop to buy the ingredients needed for his diet, because then the internet didn’t exist. Once the doctors had researched what was wrong with him, then they could prescribe the correct drugs for him. They went abroad on holiday, because my Dad was determined that his MS was not going to stop them travelling. Again people stared at him, and some people were very ignorant and laughed, especially when he was trying to board a small boat for a sightseeing trip. My Dad died in his 80’s due to a fall at the top of the stairs, the same time we had booked a weekend to celebrate 51 years of their marriage. But he was determined to go away, so we strapped his arm up and set off. But he was in so much pain when we arrived, that we had to cut the weekend short and take him to hospital. Unfortunately there was nothing they could do to help him, because his bones were very brittle. He passed away on Good Friday, just as we had arrived back home in Kent. I must agree with Vanessa that there is not enough publicity for MS, and it should be added to your charities.

    Kind regards,

    Heather

    I just wish that some animal charities would be supported by your vendors , they too are part of the world and are important.
