Over £150,000 was raised in aid of The Prince's Trust at the British GQ’s 25th anniversary gala dinner, held this week in association with Turnbull & Asser, Land Securities and Beluga Noble Vodka.
To celebrate 25 years since the launch of British GQ, an exhibition of the 50 greatest photographs to appear in the magazine was unveiled at the Phillips Gallery, London. Overseen by esteemed auctioneer Alexander Gilkes, the photographs were later auctioned at the gala dinner, where Benedict Cumberbatch talked about his role as a Prince’s Trust ambassador.
Amongst the lots were original artworks of subjects ranging from Beyoncé and Cameron Diaz, to David Beckham and Prince Harry taken by acclaimed photographers including Terrance Donovan, Lord Snowden, David Bailey and Mario Testino.
The Prince’s Trust helps unemployed and disadvantaged young people turn their lives around and relies on donations to continue its vital work. The Trust has supported 750,000 young people since 1976 – including celebrities such as Idris Elba, magician Dynamo and Paloma Faith.
