The Amazing World of Gumball!

Gumballtastic! Two lucky winners will have unprecedented access to the launch celebrations of Gumball 3000 in London.  

Gumball 3000 is an annual British motor rally that combines cars, music, fashion and entertainment. This year will celebrate the event’s 20th anniversary and this is the first time the Rally has set off from London in eight years. 

For the uninitiated the number 3000 marks the length of the route in miles (over 4,800 km) and at the end of the race the “Spirit of Gumball” cup is awarded to the crew that best embodied the spirit of the event. The cup is full of chewing gum.

The 2018 Rally will see celebrities, royals, philanthropists and entrepreneurs embark upon a 3,000 mile road trip from London to Tokyo in just seven days.

You put the FUN in FUNdraising!

Meet this year’s guest of honour, a giant snow tiger. 

Tiger square

It may surprise you to know that the one item that has raised the most money for the charities we support has traditionally been the giant soft toy.

It says a lot about the spirit of the evening when our guests give for the sake of it and often send the toy back to be re-auctioned for an even higher amount.

Some giant cuddlies have made perfect presents for small children and others now live in the charity homes that we support.

Get ready to bid for our snow tiger in the live auction on Saturday night. #LIVE15
