World Cup memorabilia may help children's medical charity SPARKS raise thousands of pounds through its new relationship with fine art auctioneers Christie's.
Two auctions are planned following SPARK's successful pitch to become Christie's charity of the year. Christie's will donate a slot in its upcoming football auction to the charity, which will pocket the proceeds from the sale of 20 items of football memorabilia.
Early next year an auction of "incredible sporting experiences
is planned, where the public can bid to participate in events with sporting celebrities.
