Charity wins in Madbid penny auction

Press Release: March 16, 2010

The leading auction site automatically donates 1% of their profits to one of four charities when customers register their details on http://uk.madbid.com

At present, Madbid.com support The Childrens Trust, Age Concern, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Alzheimers Society.

The Children's Trust provides care, education and therapy to children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs. Their services are available to children from across the UK and range from special education for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities to short breaks, transitional, palliative and long term care. The Children's Trust also run the UK's largest rehabilitation centre for children who have an acquired brain injury.

Age Concern is the UK's largest charity working with and for older people. Over 2.2 million pensioners live in poverty in the UK and over 3.5 million older people in the UK live alone. Help Age Concern reach out to isolated older people.

Every day in the UK, up to 6 teenagers or young adults receive the devastating news that they have cancer. Cancerbackup's mission is to give cancer patients and their families the up-to-date information, practical advice and support they need to reduce the fear and uncertainty of cancer.

One in three people over 65 will die with dementia and too many of them are subjected to an undignified and unnecessarily painful death. The Alzheimer's Society is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
