Trulli fundraising tops €650,000.


A second charity auction has boosted Jarno Trulli's fund-raising efforts for those affected by April's earthquake in his home region of Abruzzo by nearly €200,000.

The Toyota F1 driver has been campaigning under the Abruzzo nel Cuore banner since the disaster, collecting donations via a dedicated website [www.abruzzonelcuore.net], organising a charity football match and hosting auctions of memorabilia, the latest of which occurred on Wednesday night in Singapore.

The event, which kicked off this weekend's second Singapore GP, took the total raised by the appeal to €650,000, thanks to lots including helmets from Trulli and rivals Mark Webber and David Coulthard. Audemars Piguet also donated a unique watch, which raised €150,000 by itself.

"It was another great event and I would like to thank everyone who took part, especially Audemars Piguet," Trulli remarked "This money is really important for the people of Abruzzo and it will help to rebuild the community, which suffered so much damage in the earthquake. I have put a lot of energy into this charity project and I will personally make sure the money is well spent to make the people's lives better."
