Kylie Minogue has donated her car to a charity auction to raise money for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
The NSPCC is holding its annual City Of London Christmas Dinner on Thursday, December 1, at the Savoy, and Kylie has given her Lexus CT200h to the charity to put under the hammer.
“I am delighted to be donating my Lexus CT200h to the NSPCC for their City of London Christmas dinner, with all the proceeds going to their Helpline,” said Kylie. “I have been driving it throughout 2011 and I hope that the generous bidder gets as much enjoyment out of it as I have!”
Starting with a champagne reception, guests will enjoy a sumptuous three course meal, followed by some very special entertainment and a silent auction. The evening will culminate with a spectacular live auction and dancing. Carriages will be at 11.30pm.
Funds will go towards the NSPCC Helpline, a telephone and online service for adults who are concerned about the welfare of a child or young person. It provides adults with advice, guidance and support, and can take action on their behalf if they have concerns about a child who is either being abused or is at risk of abuse.
“I am delighted that Kylie Minogue has agreed to donate her very own Lexus CT200h and hope that it helps to raise a significant sum of money for the NSPCC on the night,” said Paul Marshall, general manager of marketing and strategy at Lexus.
