Father & Son Day Auction For Male Cancer

Fathers day is a special time of year for many men across the globe, it’s a time to thank your hero for all the hard lessons he’s taught you across the years, the countless hours of sports he’s supported you in and the soul-destroying amount of times he’s taken one for the team when you’ve annoyed your mother and he sucks up the blame. So what happens, if one day that hero of yours isn’t so strong? What if his kryptonite was cancer? Well, some fathers are destroyed by this awful disease and many more sons as well. That’s why MATCHESFASHION and Acqua di Parma have launched an online auction of extraordinary one of a kind lots on behalf of Father & Son Day. The initiative was set up in 2014 by Daniel Marks and Jack Dyson, both survivors of testicular cancer, to elevate consciousness around male cancer and to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. This year will raise funds to help support the physical and mental wellbeing of cancer patients at The Royal Marsden, and their families, by helping to fund a variety of roles in the psychological support service, dietetics and physiotherapy teams. These key roles at the hospital make a difference with personalised treatment and care, ensuring patients have the support they need at every stage of their cancer journey. Father & Son Day has raised in excess of £280,000 to date: providing funds to support specialist robotic surgery fellowships at The Royal Marsden, as well as assisting in the hospital’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lots at the auction include a private shopping experience at 5 Carlos Place (MATCHES House) which also includes a private styling session with Harry Lambert (Harry Styles’ stylist), 4 nights at an Abercrombie & Kent safari lodge in Africa, a signed Terry O’Neil print donated by Leica, a stay for two at the new Standard Hotel in Ibiza, dinner for four with wine pairing at Mark’s Club, a Salmanazar (9-litre bottle) of Moet and Chandon, a made to measure suit with a personal consultation with Thom and Luke from Thom Sweeney, a weekend stay at Jupiter Artland with private curator tour of Tracey Emin’s exhibition, a bespoke Globe-Trotter suitcase, a private dinner for 4 in the Platinum Room at Scott’s, the latest Acqua di Parma x Poltrona Frau Home Diffuser, Afternoon tea and a Spa session for 2 at the Bulgari Hotel London and many more. So quite a lot. Do yourself a favour and support this incredible charity. Because remember, not all superheroes wear capes. Auction goes live June 8th Until The 30th, Make Your Bids Here Emma-live.com
