Last year, the Get in Character auction raised £3,500 to help CLIC Sargent provide clinical, practical and emotional support to children, young people with cancer and their families. Help us beat that amount so that we can help more children!
Best–selling writer and former SAS Sergeant Andy McNab said: “I’m thrilled to be taking part in Get in Character again this year and helping raise money for CLIC Sargent.
“In 2014 the auction to be named in my book The New Enemy raised an incredible £500, so I jumped at the chance to be involved again.
"It’s a fantastic opportunity for booklovers to make their mark on a book, and something they can be proud of."
