Ruta (@Mighty_Minto), who coordinated the gathering of the 'as seen on tv' collection, said:
'Alzheimer's is a cause close to our hearts, and were thrilled to be part of this wonderful charity'
'My family and some of my dearest friends have been affected by dementia. Originally I had just a few props and signed scripts from some of the shows I'd been in, but once I started asking my co-stars and friends in the business, it seemed that everyone wanted to chip in! It would just be so great if we could raise a significant amount to help other families affected by dementia.'
