F1 drivers to come out for charity 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 personalized 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.
