Bonhams is delighted to announce the Robbie Williams Collection Sale, titled: “Doing it for the Kids”. Proceeds of the sale will be donated to children’s charity, the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, of which Williams is a patron.
“It’s a privilege for me to be a patron of The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, it makes a real difference to these children whose lives have been tragically limited. The sale gives a great opportunity for bidders to know their money will go to such a fantastic charity, whilst also taking home some of my most prized possessions that have been personal markers of my career so far,” said Williams.
Katherine Schofield, Bonhams Head of Entertainment Memorabilia, said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed as auctioneers of the Robbie Williams Charity Sale. To be recognised as pioneers for both the single-owner sale, and our fantastic successes in the Entertainment Memorabilia department, is a great honour.
“Robbie Williams is one of the most successful British recording artists of all time. His many items will no doubt be adored for years to come by enthusiastic bidders at the upcoming sale and will be raising money for an excellent cause.” Items featured in the sale include:
