StarCards launches annual F1® charity auction

03 Jul 2014

Ahead of this year’s 2014 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix, the Formula One teams and drivers have again lent their support to the annual StarCards charity auction in aid of London’s Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital (GOSH).

Renowned F1 photographer Mark Sutton has supported the fundraising event by obtaining the signatures of the 2014 drivers on GOSH playing cards and t-shirt, as well as a special 2014 signed grid photo, all of which are available to bid on.

“The F1 community globally provides amazing support and continues to be our most profitable auction each year providing essential funding for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity to spend on the most vital medical equipment, research facilities or toward the £50 million required every year to make it possible for children of all nations to get the help they need,” said Paul Brett, founder of StarCards.

Matt Forrest, GOSH’s head of community fundraising, added: “We’re very grateful to StarCards, Sutton Images and the F1 community for their amazing support over the last ten years. The money raised through this year’s auction will help us bring hope to very ill children and their families across the UK and around the world.”

The online auction runs until July 10, 2014.
