DRIVERS AND CELEBRITY GUESTS REV UP FOR GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL FUNDRAISER

Grammy award-winner Duffy will play a private gig at The F1 Party in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. The party is being held at London's V&A Museum tonight to celebrate the official launch of the 2009 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix. Abbey and Santander are generously supporting the F1 Party for a third year running to raise vital funds for the hospital's new Heart and Lung Centre. Tamara Ecclestone is the creative director of the party and has helped to plan and oversee the event from the early stages. Duffy is taking time out of her European tour to entertain Formula 1 's finest including Lewis Hamilton, Nelson Piquet, team principals Martin Whitmarsh, Ross Brawn, Christian Horner and Eddie Jordan to name but a few. The evening will be hosted by satirist and F1TM fan Rory Bremner. Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity is the official charity for the Santander British Grand Prix and every year many of the hospital's patients are invited to enjoy the event from the Paddock, where they get to meet their F1 heroes. Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One Group says, "We have brought together the Formula One community to forge a unique partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital, which has developed over many years now. I am delighted to be able to lend my support to such a great cause."

On the night there will be an exclusive auction, with lots including a once in a lifetime chance to enjoy a week of personalised work experience with Brawn GP and a high speed lap of Silverstone in the Santander 2-seater driven by Top Gear's The Stig before the start of the 2009 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.
