On 30 April 2013, rare and exclusive items from the 20 Years of War Child exhibition were auctioned alongside one of a kind experiences and memorabilia.

Guests had the opportunity to bid in a live auction and witness first-hand, the amazing achievements of this innovative collaboration with music.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that made this great event possible and to all those who participated in the auction or donated online.
