A number of must-have-can't-buy celebrity lots from the world of Formula One, other sports and entertainment will go under the hammer next week, as national youth work charity, UK Youth's "Money Can't Buy" internet auction opens for business.

The auction, which runs from November 24th to December 8th at: http://auctions.freeserve.com/members/ukyouth.htm, aims to raise tens of thousands of pounds to help enhance the lives of young people throughout the UK.

In association with Freeserve, UK Youth expect a running total of ?70,000 already raised in the first two years to be taken well over the ?100,000 mark by this year's event.

Amongst the F1 memorabilia to be sold off, is a Ferrari racing cap signed by Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, an exclusive lunch for two at the British Grand Prix - courtesy of Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, and a VIP trip to a Toyota F1 test day.

"As President of UK Youth," commented 1992 F1 world champion Nigel Mansell, "I have had the chance to see first hand the benefits of the charity's work with disadvantaged young people. In supporting this auction, you will be contributing to a great cause as well as snapping up items and experiences that money can't normally buy."

UK Youth chief executive John Bateman added: "Money can't normally buy what's on offer in this auction. But not only can your money secure these amazing items and experiences, it will also help us to help the three quarters of a million young people throughout the UK who will benefit from our work."

UK Youth ambassador and top film director Guy Ritchie continued: "This is a great opportunity to get your hands on a stack of 'money can't buy' prizes from the world of entertainment and sport. Place your bids online now and help raise money for UK Youth's work with disadvantaged young people."
