LUCY'S SPRING CLEANING FOR STARSHIP!
And she wants you to get stuck in too We know you love Lucy and we love her too - and now Lucy's throwing her support behind our latest fundraising appeal, Starship Spring Clean. Our amazing Starship ambassador has cleaned out her wardrobe and given us an exclusive collection of five outfits she wore in the show that made her an international superstar - Xena Warrior Princess. Check out the end of this email for a description of Lucy's costumes up for auction. Now is your chance to bid on these authentic items - and support one of Lucy's favourite causes in the process - Starship Children's Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.

Currently Starship is raising money to rebuild its level 6 Neuroservices and Medical Specialties wards, which treat some of the rarest and most critically ill children from around the country. "Get stuck in for Starship," says Lucy. "Visit www.trademe.co.nz/starship"
