Further details

Andy Miller, an author and editor, co-host of the podcast Backlisted, who has reached international of crazy golf. who tried to read 50 classic books in a single year, offers a burst balloon and an empty hunny-pot, which is Eeyore's birthday present in the book Winnie the Pooh, because Eeyore is his favourite character in the story and he thinks there should be a "room for gloom".

Kathy Lette, a novelist, columnist and TV sitcom writer, whose titles include The Boy Who Fell To Earth, and who has a cocktail named after her at the Savoy, donates the maternal instinct, because she wonders how motherhood caught on.

Stephen Fry, comedian, actor, author, and star of shows including Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster, A Bit of Fry & Laurie and QI, gives the Museum a simple bunch of grapes. The reason being that while writing a book about Greek mythology, where he learned about the origins of the wine god Dionysus, and the relationship between myth and modern language.
