Dizzee Rascal and Sir Patrick Stewart sign items for charity auction
Rapper Dizzee Rascal and actor Sir Patrick Stewart are among the celebrities who have signed items for a charity auction being held in London.
Redhook restaurant in Farringdon is hosting Auction Duchenne to raise funds for Action Duchenne.
Among the items people will be able to bid for are a boxing glove signed by Dizzee Rascal, who is from east London, and a Star Trek comic book signed up Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the television series.
The event at the restaurant, cocktail and oyster bar on Turnmill Street, which takes places on Wednesday, September 12, is the brainchild of Lee Steggles, founder of Got Fitness Exercise Specialists. Lee is a passionate campaigner for Action Duchenne and has helped put together training plans for the charity’s flagship Love Run Events.
He said: “I encourage people to dig deep into their pockets and join us in what promises to be a fun, very worthwhile evening.

“I am hoping Auction Duchenne will be so successful that it will flourish and grow into a regular occurrence, one of those ‘not to be missed’ events on everyone’s calendar that will help improve the lives of boys living with Duchenne and one day find a cure for this devastating, life-limiting illness.”
Action Duchenne aims to support and promote innovative research into a cure and effective medicines for Duchenne/Becker Muscular Dystrophy.
