The F1 community will come together on the evening of Wednesday July 4, as London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSHCC) and Formula One Management host an unforgettable evening to celebrate the official launch of the 2012 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.

With the kind permission of Bernie Ecclestone, the F1 paddock, celebrities and guests will join the party of the season in aid of GOSHCC. In the eighth year that the charity has hosted the only official F1 Party in the UK, it is moving to London’s most dynamic event space, Battersea Evolution. BGC Partners are welcomed on board as new headline sponsors and Pirelli are supporting sponsor for the second year running.

Natalie Pinkham, pit-lane reporter for Formula One broadcasters Sky Sports, will be hosting the evening and Tamara Ecclestone remains Creative Director of the event.

A night to remember

As well as exclusive musical performances, the dazzling close-up magic of Dynamo, and a DJ set from Henry Holland, guests will enjoy delicious cocktails and food, while a host of luxury items and experiences will be sold throughout the night as part of the exciting auctions and raffle to raise vital funds towards the work of Great Ormond Street Hospital. (Details of lots and how to pre-bid will be available before July 4 on Formula1.com.)

For a great cause

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity is the official charity for the British race and each year many Great Ormond Street patients are invited to the paddock to enjoy VIP treatment and meet their heroes. Since 2005, the relationship with F1 has also raised over £2.6 million towards the hospital’s new Heart and Lung Centre in the recently opened Morgan Stanley Clinical Building.

This year, the F1 Party will begin fundraising for the new surgery centre, where some of the world’s most renowned paediatric surgeons will be operating on patients as young as a few hours through to 18 years-old.
