British charity Bottletop held its second annual fundraiser in London last week, attracting stars such as Colin Firth, Mariella Frostrup and Tim Vincent.

Featuring a performance by Beverley Knight, the event included a massive auction of contemporary art and raised over £125,000 for the charity.

Bottletop is a UK charity which funds projects that empower young people to make informed choices and protect themselves form sexually transmitted infections and teenage pregnancies. It raises funds and awareness through its own fashion and music range and trains poor communities to make products which are sold across the world generating employment and raising funds for their education programs. One of these fundraising initiatives is a beautiful ring pull bag crafted by 24 people in Salvador. Each bag is handmade by linking hundreds of recycled ring pulls together in a crochet formation.
