The auction was split into three sections in between courses, with David Grey MBE as auctioneer.

David had also taken part in the rally as executive chairman of city company OSL Group and he placed his own successful bid for his tiger-themed car bonnet, painted by Lois Cordelia.

The evening also saw the premiere of the Bangers and Cash rally film, which was filmed and produced by the charity’s communication and social media co-ordinator Jasmine Givnan, who accompanied the cars on the journey across Europe.

“It was an exciting evening of art appreciation and bidding and we are truly overwhelmed by the generosity of both our competing teams, their supporters, our sponsors and our auction guests, all of whom helped us raise such a fantastic final total.”
