A huge selection of celebrity photos signed by the stars themselves is on offer at Buy Once, Give Twice, the UK’s premiere celebrity charity auction website.
Black and white personalised prints of celebrities including Ricky Gervais, Chris Martin, Elbow, Dara O’Briain, Barry Humphries, Jack Dee, Kevin Spacey, Willie John McBride, rugby star Martin Johnson and Rickey Hatton are going under the hammer for Trinity Hospice, a charity that provides care to the terminally ill and their families in central, south east and south west London. The ‘Larger Than Life’ project is a collection of limited edition, signed portraits of well known icons taken by renowned celebrity photographer Rich Hardcastle, and Buy Once Give Twice is exhibiting this collection in support of Trinity Hospice to create awareness of the specialist palliative care that is available to terminally ill people and their loved ones and also to raise money through sales of the prints to continue to provide these services.
The auction website is also selling a selection of signed photos for The Rainbow Centre, a charity based in Hampshire, UK, that offers Conductive Education services to help children with disabilities causing developmental delay such as Cerebral Palsy. Photos up for auction include Johnny Wilkinson, Bob Hoskins, Arsene Wenger, Mick Hucknall, Kirsty Gallagher, Ainsley Harriet, Martin Kemp, Tony Blair, Kate Thronton, Michael Owen and Angus Deaton.
