We are proud that we were able to help our partner ZOOM Charity to raise an impressive £24,737.00 at this year’s 5th annual ZOOM Charity Gala Auction at London’s InterContinental Park Lane Hotel.


In aid of Starlight Children’s Foundation, a national charity that provides entertainment in hospitals and hospices across the UK and grants wishes-of-a-lifetime for seriously and terminally ill children a selection of unique photographs taken and hand signed by F1™ drivers and team principals were auctioned in front of a star-studded audience.


One of the biggest sellers was a photo taken by Formula One™ triple world-champion Lewis Hamilton. Check out the event’s official Video.

The remaining lots have been entered in the ZOOM online auction which is now live at www.coys-zoom.co.uk
