Embrace, Prodigy and more donate items to mental health charity auction

The Prodigy's MOOG synthesiser is up for auction

Embrace's Danny McNamara, The Prodigy's Liam Howlett and a host of other stars have donated items and experiences to an auction in aid of mental health charity My Black Dog.

The items up for grabs include a MOOG synthesiser used by The Prodigy and signed by Liam Howlett, and handwritten lyrics to Embrace's song 'Ashes' with a doodle signed by Danny McNamara.

Bidders could also take part in unique experiences, such as a DJ lesson with Seb Fontaine, a private comedy gig at home with Matt Richardson, and lunch with Virgin Radio's own Kate Lawler and Eddy Temple-Morris, who are both supporters of the charity.

My Black Dog is a charity which offers free mental health chat support with volunteers who have experienced mental illness themselves. It was founded on the motto "talk to someone who gets it", with a goal to "put people in touch with others who have lived experiences of struggling with mental health, because those people completely understand what you are going through."

We are an online mental health charity. We are not doctors or therapists, not counsellors or psychiatrists, we are mental health volunteers who understand; people who have ALL experienced mental health issues.
