Fundraising News: TV's Linda Barker to give her catalogue profits to Sue Ryder

Sue Ryder Care will receive part of the proceeds from a catalogue launched by interior designer and TV star Linda Barker.

The catalogue, called Really Linda Barker, features a variety of home decorating items that Barker has selected personally. It will be mailed to existing donors early next year and later to potential supporters.

Barker said she hopes to be able to move the products to retail stores eventually.

Barker became involved with Sue Ryder Care because one of its 17 care centres, Holme Hall, is near her home in Yorkshire.

Sue Ryder Care runs neuro-logical care centres and hospices. The charity aims to raise about £13m a year to fund its operations and started its fundraising drive in 2002.

It receives about 60 per cent of its funding from government.

Barker is the first celebrity with whom the charity has formed a partnership.

"This is not something I've lent my name to and moved on from," Barker said. "It's very close to my heart."
