We were on ITV Celebrity Catchphrase
January 20, 2022
We were honoured to see Scottish actor Mark Bonnar appear on ITV’s popular game show Celebrity Catchphrase playing for Action for M.E last weekend. Mark is known for his roles as Max in Guilt, Duncan Hunter in Shetland, Bruno Jenkins in Casualty and DCC Mike Dryden in Line of Duty.
Celebrity Catchphrase is hosted by popular ITV presenter Stephen Mulhern. The game sees contestants attempting to identify the right catchphrase by viewing a short comical animated scene normally starring a golden robot called Mr Chips. Mark played alongside performer Alexandra Burke and actress Claire Sweeney. Mark won an incredible £17,200 that will improve the lives of children and adults living with M.E. If you missed the original airing on Saturday 15th January 2022, you can watch or replay the episode via the ITV Hub free of charge.
Sonya Chowdhury, our Chief Executive, said,
‘I am ecstatic that Mark chose to represent Action for M.E. and won such a fantastic amount of money. I am sure that viewers of the show living with M.E. will feel validated after years of feeling unheard and invisible to the broader population. Mark’s fantastic total will help us to deliver our one-to-one support services for adults, young people, and families with M.E and support our collaboration in biomedical research.’
We are always on the lookout for fundraisers in the community; so, if you fancy fundraising like Mark, then we’d love to hear from you. We are delighted to offer charity places for several fundraising events. We would also love to hear from you if you have a fundraising event in mind or if you’d like some advice or inspiration. We’ll be here to support you every step of the way whilst you make a real difference to the lives of those affected by M.E. We couldn’t do what we do without our incredible fundraisers, so thank you.
