Imagine you could have breakfast with the one and only Sir Richard Branson. Just you and him chatting over a cup of tea and a bacon roll. What would you ask? What have you always wanted to know about one of the most famous men in the world?

Well, in aid of Cancer Research UK, you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit down and have a chinwag with the boss of the Virgin Group.

Richard is catching a Virgin Train from London Euston on Tuesday 30th August on his latest charity adventure, a daunting swim across the Irish Sea with 5 other celebrities – including Ronan Keating and Pamela Stephenson – and you could be with him on that train.

The Swim is a celebrity-led challenge to cross the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dublin in a 10-person relay. Almost three times the length of the English Channel, this 56-mile swim hopes to raise £1 million for Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving work.

The highest bidder will have the unique experience of 30 minutes of one-on-one time with Richard. This is a very rare chance to get advice and chat about ideas from a true entrepreneur… you could even find out which football team he supports, or give him some tips on his swimming technique – the choice is up to you!

Details of the auction prize are as follows:

  • Highest bidder will be required to be at Euston Station at 8:30am Tuesday 30th August
  • One-to-one will last approx 30 minutes and will take place over a First Class breakfast onboard a Virgin Super Voyager travelling between London and Crewe.
  • The winner will travel on the train as far north as Crewe, and then be able to use the return portion of their First Class ticket to catch a Virgin Train back to London.

All proceeds of this auction will go directly to Cancer Research UK, so what do you think some one-on-one time with Richard Branson is worth, for a great cause?

The auction runs until August 28, and can be accessed via here.
