Support international refugees through Star Boot Sale 2016
Musicians such as Coldplay and Spice Girls' Mel C and other artists are once again donating their unique possessions and rare memorabilia to raise money for refugees.

There are hundreds of items on offer at the Star Boot Sale event - or you can bid in our online auction for more special items, which went live on Thursday 19th May. You can bid as many times as you like.

The Star Boot Sale event is on at the Brick Lane Yard, The Old Truman Brewery at 11am-4pm on Sunday 22nd May. The online auction runs via Star Boot Sale's official partner, Shpock from 8pm GMT on Thursday 19th May until 8pm GMT on Sunday 29th May. All the money raised will fund two mobile health clinics in Jordan.

"Since last summer, I've been motivated to do what I can for refugees still stuck in this unimaginable nightmare,' said Blur drummer Dave Rowntree.

"I've just returned from Jordan with the IRC, and this spring, I want to do more for refugees.

"I saw first-hand the enormous difference this access to vital healthcare can make to families who have fled unthinkable violence and war."

Five years after the start of the conflict in Syria, now more than ever, these families need your help.

"We want to raise £100,000 to fund crucial mobile health clinics that look after Syrian refugees in Jordan.

"All money raised by the event this spring will go towards these clinics. This is urgent. Refugees should have access to basic healthcare and I want to help make that happen"

Whether or not you can attend the event, or bid in the auction, you can make a donation to support the incredible work being delivered by the International Rescue Committee.

Their staff work tirelessly in dangerous situations to help bring about a sense of normality to those affected by conflict.
